How I Use It
Nearpod is a great tool for creating multimedia presentations to be shared with students. You can create your own slides, used some of the generic templates, and even purchase some pre-made content. Teachers guide learners by sharing slides when appropriate. Students can interact with slides in many ways. What's also fab about this tool is that is truly device agnostic!
My Take
I like this tool because it gets students more involved with content that is being shared. A teacher can require that a student respond or interact using such a tool where merely using a presentation tool allows only those students who are called on to be able to interact. One aspect I do not like is that you can only have 50 participants logged in at once.
