Using Nearpod to Elicit Full Class Participation with Technology!
Nearpod is the next big thing when it comes to using technology effectively for student engagement in classrooms. It provides students the opportunity to really engage with the teaching and not be passive observers. Interaction is built into lessons and feedback can be received in real time to drive instruction in the moment.

Nearpod works well with any device (iPad, Chromebook, Mac/PC computers, or Android devices). This workshop will go over the basics of the program, help you set up an account, and create a Nearpod you can use with your classrooms on Monday. http://katiedewey.weebly.com/nearpod.html
