How I Use It
I use Nearpod to create presentations to introduce new content and skills and to review content/skills and assess student understanding. Students love using Nearpod individually, in small groups and whole class. The interactive features and embedded media engage students in their learning.
This tool should be part of all teacher toolkits for its benefits in teaching and engaging students in learning. The mechanics of creating presentations is somewhat difficult. I often want to edit an existing presentation to improve some aspect after using it with a class and find that particularly difficult and cumbersome. It is easy to accidentally delete a presentation which you cannot get back.
