Create Rockin’ and Engaging Presentations with Nearpod

nearpodNearpod has become one of the greatest tools Stacey Mrazek uses in her classroom for differentiated instruction. Please take a minute to check out the benefits to using Nearpod in your classroom!

I am embarking on a new journey this year to “flip” my classroom.  I have used the Nearpod app to aid me in this endeavor by multiplying myself.  Isn’t that this the dream of every teacher?  Nearpod has allowed me to create interactive lessons which my students can access while I am teaching small groups.   Students can do anything from watching an educational video to a pre-recorded lesson to meet their educational needs.  One of the most beneficial aspects of the program is that I am able to create assessments for my students to complete.  I love this feature because it gives me the opportunity for immediate feedback on their performance and comprehension of the material.  Take a look at a few of the Nearpod lessons I have created and see what you think!  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time!  Check out some examples of Nearpod use in my classroom below.
