Amazing website! Students are super engaged and I loved it too!
Community Review for Nearpod
This can be used for any class type or setting and any grade level. Set up for the teacher takes a bit longer than a traditional powerpoint but it is worth it as the class seems much more engaged. I look forward to seeing how it evolves with time.
How I Use It
Instead of a boring old powerpoint to read along with the class, this program allows for fantastic interactive posts from the students on their devices at the same time. It also allows them to follow along, so if they don't have a clear view of the front of the room or have vision impairments, they can still see just like students in the front row! The opportunity for students to give anonymous answers to questions posted, (teachers can see who posted but their fellow classmates can not!) allows students who are afraid of risk taking to step up and try! This is a special setting, so as the teacher, make sure you practice how to hide names before doing it in front of the class.
