With Virtual Learning in full swing, Nearpod is keeping up with relevant lessons and activities to keep students engaged. Teachers can continue to deliver live lessons during their Microsoft Team Meeting with their students. They can also continue to assign student-paced lessons in an assignment in Canvas.
A Time to Climb- Your favorite quiz game has been released in Student-Paced mode! Now you can assign a Time to Climb quiz as part of a Student-Paced lesson, and your class can work on it on their own time.
Xbox- The Nearpod Microsoft app can now be accessed from an Xbox! As a reminder, this app is for students only. When given a code, students can now access their Nearpod lessons from their Xbox. How Cool!
Flipgrid- Teachers can easily add their Flipgrid links into Nearpod, and view/moderate the Flipgrid teacher dashboard within the Nearpod teacher view, while students are responding in a Nearpod lesson. You can check out a quick video tutorialhere (Links to an external site.). Please note that this feature works on the web only.
Relevant Lessons- Nearopd has created lessons that teachers can use to support students and keep them aware of what’s happening with COVID-19, help them with stress management, hand washing and much more. Click here (Links to an external site.) to learn more.
What is it?
Nearpod is a platform that allows a teacher to create, download, and teach interactive lessons across all student devices, systems, and browsers. It also allows teachers to receive instant data and one hundred percent feedback from all students.
