How I Use It
I use Nearpod daily in my classroom. I love the free Icebreakers lessons. I used 3 of them at the beginning of the year to get to know my students and also to help them become familiar with the Nearpod platform. The students really love the creative side that allows students to draw, type, and insert images. I really enjoy the Common Sense Media lessons. I used the free versions and ended up purchasing the entire K-2 and 3-5 units for use in my school.
My Take
I love Nearpod! I really like being able to create my own lessons with the Nearpodize app and edit existing lessons. My only complaint is that students cannot log back in the next day and continue working on their project.
