Nearpod promises to be a solution to the synchronized classroom
I recently downloaded the free Nearpod teacher and student apps to see how they might enhance how teachers engage students while doing formative assessment. Although I have not yet had the chance to try it out in the classroom, it appears that Nearpod has great potential for teachers to offer students interactive lessons while monitoring their understanding of the content.
The teacher app allows instructors to control the presentation and to get real time feedback on how each student is doing through displays of results. After downloading the app, teachers can also get a free upgrade from nearpod to be able to create their own lessons.
