Nearpod Review

Nearpod is a platform for delivering interactive presentations. It can be used in the homework mode or the live mode, which allows the teacher great flexibility and control over the pace of the class. Teachers launch the presentation and monitor progress either from the website or through the app. Using the Nearpod app on their devices, students input a code and their names to access content and submit responses.

What is Nearpod?

Nearpod allows teachers to create digital lesson plans, share it with students during class, and track individual progress. Lessons are comprised of teacher-created slides that can include text, video, images, websites, questions, quizzes, polls, and assignments. Students are able to follow the lesson on their own devices at their own pace or teachers can lead a synchronized session where students can follow the lesson in real-time. Nearpod offers nine types of formative assessment tools to capture student understanding in any lesson.

Nearpod Lessons

You can explore the Nearpod Lesson Library with over 7,000+ ready-to-run K-12 lessons in all subject areas for your school or district today. You can share free ready-to-use Nearpod lessons or any lessons that you created. You get access to an up-to-date, continuously growing library, with new lessons added and updated each month.

Nearpod provides a few sample lesson plans that teachers can choose from or they can choose to create their own as well as videos and interactive sessions to help teachers use and navigate the product.

Lessons can be personalized using Nearpod, which allows the teacher to control delivery from his or her device. The material appears on any student device, whether tablet, phone, or computer. The formative component allows teachers to embed quizzes, polls, a draw feature, and open-ended responses into the lesson. Whole-group instruction has traditionally been delivered in lecture format: the teacher stands in front of the class and presents the same lesson to everyone at the same time. 

Teachers are using Nearpod to access thousands of high quality digital lessons to enrich student learning. Nearpod's features amplify already great teaching and, as a result, students are magnifying their learning capacity.

Teacher can use the draw feature daily to collect formative data. Students use the pen tool to draw responses and send it back. Teachers immediately see the data and can share student work back to their screens in just a click. This is a powerful way for students to see peer responses and explain their reasoning.

Nearpod deeply integrates with your favorite Google tools - Google Classroom, Slides, Drive and more to fit to how you teach. 

Nearpod Students

Nearpod is effective at connecting students to their teacher and their peers. Not only does Nearpod offer endless collaboration, gamification and competition opportunities between students, but it also offers unique abilities to teachers, such as sharing student work with the rest of the class anonymously.

Nearpod Presentation

Nearpod is a presentation platform that seeks to inject elements of interaction into classroom presentations in an attempt to better engage students and provide feedback to teachers. The teacher delivers the presentation as a “live session” that is assigned a unique PIN. Students then enter the PIN in the Nearpod app on their iPads. The presentation appears on screen while the teacher controls the progression of slides and the built-in interactions with students.
