We all know that presentations have been the same for years, especially when it comes to presenting in the classroom. Nearpod changes everything about presenting to students through their engaging and individualized delivery method. It flips the traditional presentation format upside down with features and functionality that teachers have been clamoring to have for years. Instead of “sit and get” style presentations with the teacher taking center stage, Nearpod brings information to life by allowing students to access content right on their own device. Teachers have the ability to guide the entire class through a presentation or, allow students to watch at their own pace.With

With built-in quizzing functionality, it’s a cinch to add a variety of question types to any presentation in order to analyze engagement and better judge comprehension of subject matter. In addition to embedding nearly any media type available (video, audio, photos, etc), Nearpod has recently added the ability to add both 3D and VR content to their slides as well. What does this mean for you? Consider a lesson on the anatomy of the heart, your students can now manipulate a 3D model of the heart with a full 360º view of each chamber and vessel right on their own device.
