Short summary
It can be used both to create interactive lessons and videos as well as to follow students' activities in class.

Nearpod is the asset that enables us to create interactive lessons. It allows you to incorporate quizzes, reflection questions, interactive exercises and collaborative tools into your presentations. With Nearpod, we can monitor each student's activity in the classroom, as the system provides us with real-time feedback on answers given, questions missed, reflections, individual or group problem solving. This kind of interactivity is useful both in the classroom and in distance learning, as it allows you to see the answers of all students, not only those who are usually active during class.

The system has a simple user interface, making it quick and easy to work with. It is also possible to start from existing presentations in ppt format and fill them with interactive content.

Using the system's video editor, questions and exercises can be inserted at specific points in the video to be shown, which the students have to answer on the spot-  this way we can check their understanding and draw their attention to specific points to follow during the film.

  • Increases student interactivity
  • Activities of all students can be continuously monitored
  • Instant feedback for both teacher and student

You can only use certain tools if you pay for them

Usage in teaching/learning

Our interactive lessons and videos can be used live, either in the classroom or during distance learning. We share the code or link provided by the system with our learners, so they can follow the lessons, answer the questions and solve the exercises using their own devices.

When screening a film, we have the possibility to have only the questions appear on the student's device at certain points in the screening.

We can also distribute interactive learning materials and videos for home learning. Students then go through the lesson/watch the film at their own pace.

They can only watch the film if they have answered the questions asked.
