Nearpod is an award-winning, interactive mobile-learning platform that engages students with images, videos, quizzes, polls, drawing boards, game-based quizzes, virtual field trips, VR and other collaboration tools. Teachers can create their own interactive lessons or access thousands of other premade lessons or search for lessons by grade, subject, or CCSS-aligned standard. Nearpod can be used in the classroom or with remote instruction. As students complete assessments, the teacher can interact and provide support with individuals in real time, and Nearpod automatically creates a report on student performance for each assessment. Nearpod is designed to integrate with Zoom, Google Classroom, and most LMS platforms. It partners with many online educational leaders like Desmos, PhET, Flocabulary, Breaking the Barrier, Newsela, and many others. 

This course is applicable towards the Classroom Technology Integration Certificate and Student Engagement Certificate.

My journey in education has been so much fun. I studied nutrition and dietetics with an emphasis in chemistry graduating with honors and soon enjoyed sharing my knowledge through consulting. The bug for teaching quickly grew and I acquired a multi-subject teaching credential while working in a small K-8 elementary school assembling the first computer lab. Passionate about my new venture, I moved to a larger district and taught 3rd and 4th grades excited about bringing in new field trips to Yosemite, the state capital and wrangling in a few horses to showcase cowboy times. Now an online instructor, I take the time to read all about my students’ ideas in their classrooms and love to locate additional resources for them. I am so grateful for an amazing group of online colleagues and educators that share and learn from each other.
