How I Use It
I have used it for an interactive presentation during whole class instruction, in small groups for struggling students, reviews for tests, Flipped classroom lessons at home, homework assignments, and assessments. Each of these methods of use were successful, enjoyable to students, and led to deeper levels of engagement, interactivity, and learning.
My Take
The host of features, assessment options, and ways to for students to be engaged in lessons makes Nearpod applicable in nearly any area of teaching! It can be difficult to learn how to create a presentation yourself, and the reports are difficult to use when looking at individual student work. But Nearpod has constantly added features and improved since I first began using it. I am very excited to see how the program continues to grow!
