How I Use It
I have used NearPod to do Information Literacy lessons. I have students go to websites and find answers or make an evaluation and then answer survey questions. What I like is that NearPod is teacher controlled and paced. The feedback is immediate and a teacher can see student understanding.
My Take
I love using NearPod because as a teacher I can control the pacing and see student understanding in real time. It is engaging to students because it is constantly changing and asking for their input.
