Nearpod Review   
  • What is Nearpod? - "Nearpod is an interactive presentation and assessment tool that can be used to amazing effect in the classroom. The app’s concept is simple. A teacher can create presentations that can contain Quiz’s, Polls, Videos, Images, Drawing-Boards, Web Content and so on. The children can access a teacher’s presentation through a code. It is up to the teacher to then move the class through the presentation and let them interact with the media as they go."  Read Nick Acton's full review here
  • eLearning Committee Review - Nearpod scored a 25 out of 27 possible points.  This web tool is recommended in a 2:1 or 1:1 environment. 
  
 
 Recap 2.0    
  • Let's Recap is Q & A platform in which students use a webcam on any device to share their questions, answers, and reflections privately with their teachers. Recap 1.0 was about asking questions for students to respond to. Recap 2.0 turns that around for students to ask questions and have teachers to respond to them.
