Nearpod

Nearpod is an all-in-one solution for the synchronized use of iPads in the classroom that makes lectures more engaging through interactive multimedia presentations. With Nearpod, teachers can create mobile presentations, engage students in class, and assess them in real time.

The fast adoption of tablet computing and mobile devices is having a profound impact on education. Nearpod allows educators to very easily take their existing presentations, convert them into mobile-friendly content, and engage all students to convert them into active classroom participants. Teachers can deliver their existing content through mobile (iOS or Android) devices and get instant feedback from students through interactive features like polls, quizzes, drawing activities, and others.
