Booklet – Pupils with Cancer – A Guide for Teachers.

BrainPOP® was conceived by Dr. Avraham Kadar, M.D., an immunologist and pediatrician, as a creative way to explain difficult concepts to his young patients.

Ideal for both group and one-to-one settings, BrainPOP is used in many ways – from introducing a new topic to illustrating complex subject matter to use as a revision tool.

Content is accessed online making it ideal for teaching in non-traditional settings. BrainPOP is used successfully in many centres who work hard to engage learners. The short animated movies are a great resource to help kids understand the world around them – they encourage curiosity and (most importantly!) make learning fun.
