How I Use It
Nearpod allowed me to take a PowerPoint presentation, saved as a PDF, and convert it into a medium that allows me to ask questions, take polls but most importantly share on individual devices while maintaining control of the presentation. I used a presentation about the life cycle of the frog and asked questions to draw arrows demonstrating the direction of the life cycle, answer questions based on what was being discussed during the presentation and could check for understanding throughout the task.
My Take
Nearpod is a powerful tool that keeps growing with features and application. It can be used on any device mobile or laptop. Once you have created a few presentations the process becomes very simple for preparing your activities.
