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.
