How I Use It
I use Nearpod to generate presentations that students can follow on their own iPad. Students are able to show their understanding and work without worrying about what other students are doing. Students are interacting with me through the activity and are able to show me their understanding of concepts using different modalities.
My Take
I love using Nearpod. I can easily take a pre-existing document and turn it into a Nearpod to use with my students. Aside from developing my own, there are many great free ones available. I love how I can download all their work into one document and go over it on my own pace at a later date.
