Apps for Education- Nearpod

Redefining learning

What is nearpod

Nearpod is an App that allows teachers to share presentations. It also lets you be a fully engaged participant and interact with the presentation through polls, quizzes, videos, drawing interactivity, website-sharing, self-guided quizzes and more.(Edudemic)

Tried and tested

  • I’ve been using nearpod to create my own bespoke text book. Presentations can be uploaded from Dropbox and camera roll etc. The draw function has allowed me to present a question that students answer and submit on the screen. Once all answers are in I display a worked solution for the class to compare and discuss.
  • Whole exam papers can be uploaded through Dropbox when in PDF format and by posting the link to the presentation on a student learning platform such as Edmodo students can work through the questions at this own pace.
