How I Use It
I use near pod to support interactive lesson design. As a tool, near pod helps take presentations to the next level, by allowing you to build in formative and summative assessments, guided exploration, video and more. The draw it feature allows high level tasks to be embedded in the lesson, and the reporting tools make it easy to go back and look at student work.
My Take
I really like this tool, and my students will start bugging me if I go to long without using it. They always seem to enjoy the lessons I do with it. The interactive features help to make the lessons more engaging and allow me to better track how well students are learning the material.
