How I Use It
Everyone is familiar with PowerPoint and creating presentation to accompany an idea that you are sharing. We are used to the static graphics that are made to support what we are talking about, a visual cue to remembering what is being presented. Nearpod goes beyond just using visuals and allows the audience to be much more engaged in the presentation by participating with this app. While the service can be reached on a browser, the app makes joining and running sessions quicker and easier. Nearpod will truly change the way that you present!
My Take
If you want to increase the engagement in technology in your classroom and in the lesson you present, Nearpod is the easiest and quickest way to accomplish that. Not only is setting up and implementing a Nearpod quick and easy, it is instantly rewarding when you see students engagement increase because of the interactivity of Nearpod. No longer will your students sit idle, instead they will be able to explore more deeply into a lesson. From flipping the classroom to collecting realtime data, Nearpod is a tool that you won't soon forget!
