Educators have access to a growing library of free or paid CCSS aligned presentations or simply create your own. Nearpod is perfect for a BYOD environment as it works on any device.

Nearpod: A Web 2.0 Tool to Immerse and Engage Your Students
  • John Cork says:
    This website from Making Tech Simple is laid out in web-page format and simple to read. I appreciate how the guide leads me through the steps I needed to set-up my very own Nearpod account, create and upload a presentation, add interactive features, perform a test run and collect data from Nearpod’s amazing report feature. This website is also great for quick reference if you get stuck or need to look up how to complete a task in Nearpod.

    The first step to using Nearpod is visiting the site and signing up. The free version works great and will get you on your way! Here you’ll be able to select from a library of presentations or create your own. You can include videos, audio, images, PDF files, PowerPoint slide decks, polls, and quizzes. Have your students log-in to your presentation with a code and you can either control their experience or let them work at their own pace.
