Upcoming BrainPOP Webinars

If you haven't checked out any of the BrainPOP webinars, I highly recommend that you do.  You can view them live in order to ask questions and be part of the conversation, OR you can view them in the archives at your convenience.  There look to be a couple of good ones coming up in May.  And unlike many other education type webinars, I feel with BrainPOP they aren't trying to sell their product, but just let you know more about cool educational ideas, that may or may not connect with the BrainPOP resource directly.
