Are your lessons interactive? Can you get real-time feedback on learner understanding? This tutorial will help you get started with creating interactive and engaging lessons in Nearpod.

After creating and trying out a lesson with learners, share your Nearpod creations and student responses with other participants in a 90-minute virtual round table on April 30, 1:00–2:30 p.m.

  • Instructors and tutors seeking online tools to impact student learning and integrate digital literacy with classroom instruction
