Nearpod

Nearpod is excellent for direct instruction. Its slides feature works just like a PowerPoint, however, it is displayed on all user's screens, so it can be utilized even in a large environment. In the classroom, it alleviates the problem of being able to see the board. The platform provides numerous engagement tools that can assess learning easily, quickly, and makes it fun for the users.

Schoology Learning

Schoology is a learning management system that is designed for K-12 schools. In my personal experience as an elementary school educator, students in grades 2-5 can easily use this LMS. However, it is not as primary friendly for our young K-1 students, who rarely use the program. At times, the program can be daunting to teaches who do feel as confident in their own tech skills, but with support, it is very usable

  • Allows for absent or homebound students to access materials, engage in the classroom activity, and stay current with classroom progress.

Cons

Nearpod

  • I would love Nearpod to have more free activities.
  • I would love Nearpod to be free for educators.
  • I would love if teachers could assign homework on Nearpod.

Schoology Learning

  • A streamlining of the process could help when teachers are transitioning it. The grading area needs some help. I often have classes of over 30, and scrolling up and down to click a kid's name and then see their work is really tedious.
  • Schoology does take a lot more clicks to get things done than some other LMSs.

While we have taken time to re-evaluate our selected 1:1 devices, Schoology's impact on student learning is unquestioned. Students are able to connect with other learners, create and share products of their learning, and develop their digital fluency through their use of Schoology.

It's very easy to use Schoology. As with any LMS, it helps to learn some tips and tricks prior to getting started. But, each item is clearly indicated within the platform. If I want to add materials, it is right at the top of my screen. If I want to view the calendar, it is indicated to the right of my screen. Navigating a course and the platform is quite straightforward. Additionally, the benefit of Schoology's help center and user community makes asking and answering questions quick and easy.

The support staff for Nearpod is top-notch. I have not had technical issues, but I did have a concern about my bill and they reached out to me nearly immediately to address the problem. I was very satisfied with how they handled the interaction from beginning to end. They did a great job.

Okay, 9.5. While nothing is perfect, the team at Schoology Learning and PowerSchool continues to add features and integrations to Schoology. The number of third party integrations has increased. The analytics has been greatly improved for both classroom teachers and district administration. Looking forward to the day that the Assessment feature has full feature parity with the Test/Quiz feature

Alternatives Considered

Nearpod

The custom, integrated, online content, along with school libraries, makes this product superior to PearDeck. Nearpod exceeds PowerPoint because of the ease of use, the student paced lessons, and the ability to embed CFUs.

Schoology Learning

Schoology provides a much more user-friendly experience for students and instructors while providing most, if not all, of the same functionality of Blackboard. In addition, Schoology adds additional social experiences that encourage student collaboration inside and outside of the classroom. There is also a strong community of educators who use Schoology, providing many peer learning groups for instructors to collaborate, share materials, and provide ideas for classroom content

Return on Investment

Nearpod

  • The impact is awesome. It gives students a digital option other than PowerPoint for presentations.
  • The feedback tool allows you to follow students in realtime.
  • The shallow learning curve made it easy encourage other faculty to try it.

Schoology Learning

  • Using Schoology to build a foundation for a blended learning model has helped increase my students ABC rate between 15-20% in all classes!
  • Using Schoology is forcing my students to become responsible for their own learning!
  • The only negative thing I have encountered is the students resistance to change!
