Nearpod is the tool that I have been waiting for to create visually exciting learning presentations for the classroom for groups and self-paced differentiated learning. You can add just about any content that you can imagine, including google forms/polls, videos and links to websites. What I love is that you can embed good pedagogical practices like “Turn and Talk”, “Quickwrites” and assessment right into the lesson! It is compatible with any device, including iPads. You can create your own lesson or edit any of the amazing lessons from their ever-growing library.

I will be creating lessons over the summer and would love to hear what you think about this resource!
