What will I learn?

Nearpod is without a doubt one of the best tools for teacher and students. It works on any device is the one tool that should be a staple in every teachers Edtech Toolkit. NearPod connects teachers with every device in the classroom using a simple PIN. By connecting, a teacher can now control student devices and guide them through a series of slides and activities including watching videos, browsing images, polling, quizzing and our favourite, drawing activities.
