Overall Satisfaction with Nearpod

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
  • We are in year 1 of implementation of the paid version of this product.
I don't know of a product off hand that does what Nearpod can do. Between the library of pre-made lessons, the ability to create your own lesson content, the ability to add interactive content, Nearpod offers a unique engagement platform for instruction.
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.
