How I Use It
Nearpod is great for keeping all students together in a presentation. It is basically like a PPT but with more features - and puts the 'slide' on each users screen. I love the polling and drawing feature! I had students draw molecules and I was able to quickly see who needed more help.
My Take
I love this product - but I am bummed it has a minimum user limit of 20 for the free version.
