As part of being a Certified BrainPop Educator, I have to keep my training fresh. So a few months ago, when BrainPop offered up some new tools, I jumped at the chance of giving them a go.
Creative Coding is a new favorite tool that I am excited to try with my school. It offers a simple way to bring the skills of coding into the familiar tool that is BrainPop. Because it's connected to different BrainPop movies, it makes for a fantastic formative assessment tool, as well as an engaging way for kids to explore creativity and showcase their knowledge of content and coding skills!
