Nearpod

“Can you see the board?”

As a teacher I asked this several times a day.  Then one day Nearpod was invented and this question was no longer relevant.  Nearpod is an app for your Smartphone or iPad that allows you to share presentations with your students on their own devices.  This means if you are in a classroom with students who have iPads, iPod Touches, or iPhones they can now see the content you are presenting right on their device and you control what they can see.

Nearpod is a great app not only for presenting to students, but also assessing students. You can add polls, activities, and even share videos with Nearpod. Below is a video tutorial and link for handouts.  I would love to hear how you are using Nearpod with your students, feel free to leave a comment.
