As far as I know, I am the only professor in my area that uses Nearpod, and I absolutely LOVE it! It is so flexible -- so much more than a simple presentation software. I integrate numerous videos into my presentation, and they appear seamlessly. Probably the strongest in-class aspect of Nearpod is the ability to incorporate "clicker" type questions and polls -- it's a great way to assess student understanding on the spot. Additionally, Nearpod makes the presentations available to the students wherever and whenever they have access to the Internet.
  • Accessibility
  • Clicker questions in class
  • Seamless integration of multimedia
  • Students must have Internet access, since presentations are not downloadable
  • Only YouTube videos are searchable within the app
Nearpod works great in any classroom, but the presentation must be projected or each student must have access to a internet connected device.

It's used by technology mentors such as myself district-wide. It helps engage learners by providing brain breaks at different times. I utilize it to provide direct instruction to my students while at the same time obtaining invaluable data about what they're learning and how they're retaining it. I've been trying to get other teachers at my school to utilize it.
  • Displaying information.
  • Varied assessment tools.
  • Price.
  • Storage space for free users.
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.

Nearpod is a great solution for teachers to check for understanding in real time while working in a digital classroom.
  • Provide timely and individualized feedback.
  • Allow for the teacher to check for understanding, for the entire class, in one view.
  • Present an array of different interactive lesson items, at the fingertips of every student.
  • It would be nice if there was a grade book that interacted with our LMS.
Nearpod is perfect for the digital classroom that needs an answer to the question, "How do I know if my students understand what I am teaching?"

Nearpod for K-12 Use

Nearpod is being used in our K-12 classrooms for instructional purposes. Teachers are using Nearpod to deliver content to students and teachers are continuing their own learning via professional development delivered using Nearpod. Nearpod helps provide a change of pace to the normal instructional day and delivers content with opportunities for active learning.
  • Engagement
  • Formative assessment
  • Library of Resources
  • Larger Spanish language lesson library
Nearpod is well suited to classroom use. Adaptations can be made so the platform is usable in all grades K-12. Beta features, such as adding audio to slides, allow for usage with students too young to read or those that struggle with reading. Interactive components such as the quiz feature make in-class formative assessments quick, timely, and easy.

Nearpod is being used by some of the school of nursing faculty. It addresses the need of getting students to collaborate on projects outside of the classroom. It flips the coursework perfectly, in that a homework assignment can be accessed anywhere, anytime on multiple devices. Also, the integration with multimedia resources is great... from video, to audio, and even webpages.
  • Multimedia integration
  • LMS LTI, especially Canvas
  • Device platform flexiblity
  • Tagging within slides
