Brainpop

BrainPOP is a suite of digitally animated products that presents curriculum-based topics for students in grades K-8. The site strives to spark curiosity while delivering introductory material covering a wide range of topics. BrainPOP is subscription-based.

GOALS

BrainPOP strives to spark curiosity while delivering introductory material covering a wide range of topics. The site is organized into myriad modules, each of which showcases a short movie on a particular topic, accompanied by quizzes, interactive activities, and learning games. BrainPOP also creates monthly featured playlists on broader “Spotlight” topics such as ancient civilizations or cyberbullying.

The eponymous product, BrainPOP targets students in grades 3-8; BrainPOP Jr. is geared for students in K-3; other products (i.e. BrainPOP Español, BrainPOP ESL, etc.) have been created for other specific audiences. BrainPOP is also home to GameUp, an online learning games portal featuring vetted titles developed by leading game publishers. BrainPOP Educators is a hub for free professional development, teacher tools, and best practices.

APPROACH

Teachers select a topic to teach, and watch the movie with their class. They can then use the quiz provided by BrainPOP or use the materials provided to engage their classroom with the topic at hand. Additional modules related to the initially chosen topic are also displayed on the site.

Alternatively, teachers can assign movies and activities to be watched and completed. Available with certain subscriptions, the "My BrainPOP" suite of features allow teachers to track students’ progress through the work. Students can also view their past progress using My BrainPOP.

BrainPOP activities and quizzes align with a variety of standards, including the Common Core State Standards; educators can search for movies and activities by state or national standards, grade level and subject.

IMPLEMENTATION

BrainPOP’s is primarily a web-based tool available for any browser running Flash. Apps are also available for all major platforms, including iOS and Android, though not all features are available on all versions of the app. A projector screen or large television may be used when watching movies as a class.

LibriVox - public domain books podcasts

LibriVox is a project which objective is to make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet (generally podcasting). It has a database-driven catalog where every podcasting project can be found using the search page.
Once you have found and clicked the link for a book/recording you want to listen to, there are several things to note about the individual catalog pages. Each catalog page contains a description of the book, and helpful links about the book and author. You can also find a link to an online source for the text, if you wish to read along.
You'll find that you can download files in several places. You can download the individual chapters by choosing 128kbps MP3, 64kbps MP3 (smaller file size), or the Ogg Vorbis files. You can also find a link to a zip file of the whole book at the top. Another option is to find the recording with !BitTorrent, but not all recordings have been seeded.
The first step before you listen is to get the audio files onto your own computer. Once you have found an audiobook that interests you, there are many ways to download the files, and save them onto your computer. Each chapter is offered in three (3) formats: 64 Kbps MP3, 128 Kbps MP3, and Ogg Vorbis.
The audio files are hosted by the Internet Archive (see http://www.media-and-learning.eu/resource/internet-archive)
It is a totally volunteer, open source, free content, public domain project.
Librivox contains books in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and a few other languages.
