How I Use It
I took some of my old powerpoint presentations about earthquakes and volcanoes and made a Nearpod presentation. In the new presentation, I included "checking for understanding" spots were students would take a poll, or a quiz. Students also had to draw and create their own volcano illustrations. I also embedded links to videos and reliable websites.
Overall, I would highly recommend this APP for teacher led instruction or even student-led learning. This would be a great tool to get full engagement as you can control the slides and the activities they engage in. Students who were absent or missed class can also catch up by learning the lesson independently in their own pace.
