How I Use It
I use near pod as a self paced presentation tool. Students can work at their own pace allowing me to work closely with individuals as needed. It is easy to integrate a "Quick Check" assessment at any point. Lessons can be reviewed remotely after posting.
My Take
HOT! This is an app I can use everyday. Even on days where you receive a curve ball, or something has happened to throw you off, creating or modifying a lesson in NearPod is a pleasure. I created a lesson about using the da Vinci surgical robot in like 5 minutes after taking 10 minutes to learn the app. It is awesome!
