Nearpod

Nearpod is a platform which is designed to enhance students’ learning by creating interactive lessons. Choose from existing lessons on the site or upload one of your own and customise it by adding questions, polls, quizzes and more. To share the lesson, teachers must give their students a code so that they can access it. Teachers can then view their students’ responses and assess their progress.

Evaluation: Great resource for improving student engagement. With its interactive interface, Nearpod will increase student participation in classroom activities and make it easier for teachers to assess their students’ progress. Also available in app form.

Cost: Free, with registration, premium plans available
