WHY NEARPOD?

Nearpod is an amazing tool that is available on any web-enabled device. It's a slide presentation on steroids that YOU, the teacher control. With the capability to gather formatively assess your students, move non-linearly through your lesson, track student participation, and by allowing your students to use the tools their drawn to, Nearpod is a must have in any classroom.

Nearpod-


  1. Delivers instruction on the screens that matter most in a 1:1 class, not just the one a teacher has access to,
  2. Transitions instruction to a learning activity, not just a teaching activity,
  3. Creates a safe environment for students because knowledge and insights can be shared anonymously,
  4. Liberates you from the front of the room and allows you to be where the learning goes on (makes for a great classroom management tool too),
  5. Reports help you to:
  • Know the effectiveness of instruction (instead of estimating it by test results)
  • Do informed differentiation
  • Reduce the need of more formative testing
  • Show accurate data on student progress in parent-teacher meetings
6. Uses existing learning resources (Powerpoints, video's, questions, websites etc) to build engaging learning activities that help you step up the SAMR ladder without you even trying
