Bringing BrainPOP to Mexico City
We’re thrilled to report that nearly 30,000 students at 66 schools in Mexico City now have access to our resources thanks to a new agreement between BrainPOP and Mexico City’s Department of Public Education. The agreement is part of Mexico City’s Educaćion en Red, a large-scale initiative with the goal of widespread online educational technology integration.
This newest batch of BrainPOP users will have 24/7 access to BrainPOP Español – our Spanish language resource – and BrainPOP ESL – our award-winning English language learning and teaching tool – from any computer with an internet connection. Teachers will be able to take advantage of the online professional community BrainPOP Maestros. Like its U.S. counterpart BrainPOP Educators, BrainPOP Maestros features lesson plans, classroom tools, best practices, and the insight of more than 4,000 teachers across the Spanish-speaking world.
You may already know how widely BrainPOP Español is used in bilingual settings here in the U.S. But it’s also used by more than 4.5 million children in 19 Spanish-speaking countries – in rural communities, urban centers, public and private schools, libraries, and homes. Within Mexico, BrainPOP has partnered with institutions including the National Council for Culture and Arts of Mexico (CONACULTA), the Department of Public Education of the State of Veracruz, UNETE Foundation, and the Ministry of Social Development.
Congrats to the BrainPOP Latinoamérica team on the signing of this far-reaching agreement. We look forward to welcoming our new users!
