What is Nearpod?
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.
