What is Nearpod?

Nearpod is an intriguing solution to an "all-in-one" presentation and polling application for classroom and other large iPad environments. The app provides the ability to upload existing presentations as well as create new ones from scratch. Adding interactive features such as question/answer polling, surveys, and drawings are easy and the entire pacing of the presentation is controlled from the teacher's iPad.

How Can Teachers Use it?



Teachers can use Nearpod effectively in the classroom to support student learning in a variety of ways. As an assessment tool, Nearpod provides immediate feedback and opportunities for re-teaching. When students receive quiz scores, they can ask questions to clarify errors in their understanding of the content instead of waiting until a paper copy is handed back a week later. As a presentation tool, students move through content at their own pace which allows for differentiation. Teachers may also choose to provide students with different presentations to further individualize instruction. As an interactive tool, students complete polls and results are immediate for classroom discussion. As a homework tool, students access the assignment outside of the classroom on their own device using the free app or or on the website. They respond to open-ended questions that the teacher can review online and use to prepare follow-up lessons based on areas of need. And finally, as an instructional tool, teachers can project student work to the class to discuss, review, or evaluate individual responses.
