Engaging pupils in learning using interactive video, quizzes, and games
A new Action Research study from BrainPOP UK shows how high quality visual literacy resources can improve motivation to learn, increase collaboration, and aid recall.
Professor Christina Preston and Dr Sarah Younie have produced an independent study with Oakdale Junior school in the borough of Redbridge, East London.
Oakdale Junior school has been using BrainPOP UK for a number of years and this was an opportunity to reflect on how they use BrainPOP UK in their teaching practice.
The MirandaNet team spent time with the school’s senior leaders, teachers, and pupils to investigate whether their growing use of video, gaming and quizzes was enriching learning and what they could do to improve their practice further.
The process specifically looked at evidence of learning, from motivation to understanding complex concepts to improved practice.
