Introduction to Nearpod

July 16 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am


Please join Colleen Kaplan and Holly Kelly for an introductory level session on Nearpod, an app/website that will take your classroom presentations to the next level. Using content you have already created, build interactive lessons using multimedia and unique formative assessment tools. This will be a hands-on session – feel free to bring lesson materials or a set of resources so you can build your first lesson as we learn together (ex: PowerPoints, PDFs, Google/Word documents, videos, pictures, etc).
