netTrekker has announced it is now offering its users seamless access to curriculum-based animated digital content from BrainPOP. With BrainPOP's animated educational resources fully accessible from within the netTrekker search tool, subscribers have the option to upgrade their netTrekker accounts to include all BrainPOP products - BrainPOP Jr. (K-3), BrainPOP and BrainPOP Español.


By having access to BrainPOP content through the netTrekker search tool, educators can easily find and add to their lesson plans a variety of digital resources that meet specific state standards and students' individual learning needs. Teachers can use BrainPOP's animated movies and corresponding quizzes, games, vocabulary pages, and activities to introduce new topics in the classroom, engage students and help reinforce complex subject matter. All BrainPOP resources are supported by BrainPOP Educators, a free professional community for teachers, offering innovative lesson plans, video tutorials and other tools.

The partnership between netTrekker and BrainPOP also provides students access to digital education resources outside the classroom. Using netTrekker at home, students can search for information to use in reports, projects, and assignments. In addition, BrainPOP gives students access to content on classroom skills like notetaking.

Existing BrainPOP and netTrekker subscribers can integrate their BrainPOP resources into their netTrekker subscription for free by contacting their netTrekker Account Manager. Non-BrainPOP subscribers can enjoy a portion of BrainPOP content through netTrekker for free. Educators interested in learning more about the netTrekker and BrainPOP collaboration can sign up for a free 14-day trial at www.nettrekker.com.
