What Teachers Are Saying About Nearpod:
"My students love using the Nearpod app! It allows me to assess my students using polls, multiple choice questions, and open ended questions." - Natasha, Spanish Teacher - New York
“I am now able to engage all students during my lessons. There are many parts to Nearpod, but the one that creates active learners in my classroom is Draw It. This feature allows my students to literally draw on any slide I push out to their iPads. “ - Daniel, Teacher & Tech Specialist - New Jersey,
"Nearpod is a powerful tool! My students love it and it gives me so much flexibility in and out of the classroom. I was using Nearpod in my AP Biology class and one of my students arrived late due to a dentist appointment. Just as he walked in the door I asked a question and he answered it. After seeing the astonished look on my face he explained that another classmate had texted him the presentation PIN and he had been following along the entire period so he hadn't missed anything! Awesome!" Janell, Teacher - Florida.
"Nearpod was great and the ability to guide students through the presentation, while walking around the classroom was excellent. Of course the power comes from the interactive elements of the presentation." - Matt, Teacher - Middlesex, UK

Nearpod this week
Having just started to use Ipads with my class at school, I determined to at least produce something they could use the first day back after half term. I produced a short review of holiday activities myself, which they loved, and later found a free lesson on South America, which livened up our Geography lesson no end. The students were fully engaged and even those who do not normally concentrate worked well. Many thanks!
If you have a set of iPads in your classroom then you need this app. You can show presentation, ask them questions and even get them to draw pictures but you control the pace. You can also generate reports after session. Just what I have been looking for.
