Mr. Babbs' Class Learns with Nearpod

With so many tech tools out there for students, it is sometimes difficult to find the best of the best. Mr. Babbs must have an eye for quality. His class used the great Nearpod app last week. What is Nearpod?

Mr. Babbs explains, "Nearpod allows students to have their own personal copy of a presentation right in front of them using any device. You create a presentation in Nearpod or upload your own from a Powerpoint or PDF. Then you can add interactive elements such as quizzes, surveys, short response and even draw it. Once the presentation is complete, teachers are able to download a report that contains all the student responses. Also, you can assign a Nearpod in homework mode, where the student paces themselves through the presentation. This is great for students who were absent or a flipped classroom."

It was easy to see how much students enjoyed being so involved in a lesson. Check out some pictures of his class in action below. And if you want more info on nearpod, the is an introduction video is at the bottom of this post.
