How I Use It
Creating dynamic presentations with embedded interactive activities and formative assessments of various modalities. Set up time is very fast if you are uploading content that you have created in PowerPoint or Google Slides.
My Take
Some features are paid, and I hesitate to say that paying is worth the price point, but if you have the resources then I highly recommend it. Nearpod is an excellent presentation tool that my students and me use. I love the formative assessment options like quick poll, multiple choice, short answer, draw it, and more. I also highly value being able to use web content tool. Overall, I think that Nearpod is a must have app for any teacher.
