Nothing But Nearpod

FETC: Met up with CEO of Nearpod


 
Clearly, we use other apps… but I did need a clever alliteration for this evening’s blog title. A few weeks ago, I attended FETC and got to meet the CEO of Nearpod. He had asked me for a wee sound byte and I obliged by sharing a few ways our iClassrooms are using Nearpod.

For more on Mathy Cathy and Nearpod, check out:

 
Math isn’t the only content area or audience taking a liking to the app. Recently, Tanna Fiske’s 8th grade students prepared lessons for their 5th grade elementary counterparts using Nearpod as the vehicle for instruction. Read more about this vertically aligned effort here. The video below also does an excellent job of showcasing the student led event.

If you are interested in seeing these iClassrooms in action, consider a site visit to the HCMS campus.

Designing Interactivity

By now I am sure you all know I am a bit of an apple fan girl. I have to say that the devices play very well with each other. In preparation for two poster sessions at FETC next week, I began working on a resource that people could take away that would be visual and informative… and perhaps even interactive.

I began creating the resource using the Designs for Pages app on my iPad to create the image below and then emailed the file as a Pages document in order to make some final edits (screenshots tend to be easier) on my Mac. Then it was a matter of saving the doc as an image and uploading it to Thinglink where the interactivity begins… If you look closely, you can even get a sneak peek at the resources for the “iVocabulary” workshop which will be offered at TCEA 2013 in two weeks.
