Teacher Review for Nearpod

When people say that our district's purchase of iPads for every student was a mistake, I whip out Nearpod and prove them wrong.

How I Use It
I used Nearpod in my Music Appreciation class. I presented a unit on Classical Composers which is usually tough for students with a short attention span. I played Moonlight Sonata for them during the Beethoven presentation and had them draw a graphic representation as they listened. They were excited to have their artwork displayed for their classmates.
My Take
I love Nearpod. I wish my District would buy the full super duper version with all of the bells and whistles.
