Bring student engagement into every classroom with Nearpod.

student engagement platform built to make teaching with technology easy. It’s

and Chromebooks. With Nearpod you can control what your...
The computer website is great as far as I’m aware. My teacher uses it in class but I don’t always have a computer available so I downloaded this app. It’s pretty neat but it’s a bit inconvenient. We do a lot of interactive stuff so we type a lot on “drawings” but I can’t figure out how to change the settings like color etc for the text. After tapping it at least 20 times, I got the color choices to show but I haven’t been able to open it again. Also when attempting to resize the text box, it goes absolutely wild. Long story short: the user interface needs a LOT of tweaking. I’m using iOS
I have loved using Nearpod in my classroom for the past year. However, we recently switched to iPads and it has been so difficult. It works much better on the browser. The most recent problem is that it glitches out on draw it slides by adding a million text boxes when you touch the screen. It’s been over a week, and it’s very disheartening to not be able to use it during math or other subjects. I’m using it less and less because I just want my lessons to go smoothly. Please update the app quickly.
Great tool... glitchy app
I’ve been using Nearpod for a year and I am a premium account holder. I love making Nearpod presentations since it keeps kids engaged and allows me to get instant feedback to student understanding. My only complaints are: (1) wish Nearpod would allow embedded videos from EdPuzzl (2) fix glitchy app that makes it difficult to sign in via Google. I have to log in log out and/or “kill” the app severL times to get it to work. That’s inconvenient when you have a room full of people waiting for you to start a presentation.
Nearpod has been one of my favorite tools to use in the classroom for the last three years of my teaching career. Nearpod gives me the ability to teach a lesson at my pace or allow the students to work at their own pace, which is a great way to differentiate instruction. My advice for anyone interested in using Nearpod is to just jump in feet first, it took me a few times to get the hang of it but I haven’t looked back since.
It works just fine in my classroom, only some really minor issues that don't really affect me.
Good but not that good
I like Nearpod for the thing that you can do like for example drawing or quiz but as a student, some people use it badly and write things not appropriate. And also the design is so bad and sometimes I don’t even see the goal of it. There are a LOT OF bugs for example the draw page I cannot even draw a line with my stylus or my finger. They say you can take notes, I tried it a billion of times it doesn’t work at all.
Good but missing
I have been using the website for my classroom and it has worked great, although I cannot afford the Gold membership and wish more of the premium features were cheaper for teachers. The one thing about the app I dislike though is that you can’t share student work with all participants. You can’t showcase ok work. Which is something you can do on the computer.
STUDENTS ARE ENGAGED!
After 1 year of use I can resoundingly support Nearpod use as presentation material for middle school. Students are excited to use it, engaged when doing so, and honestly more dialed in than when presented in other ways. Well worth a try!
Easy to use, so many possibilities
I adore nearpod because of all the ways I can use to facilitate lectures, activities, or even homework. Time to climb was a fantastic addition, nearpod is always adding fun new features.
Fabulous, but kind of a tease
A love what’s available...when I get to use it. The app continually crashes when I log in with Office. Won’t let me log in online with a device (app only) so I can’t prepare lessons at home. Free storage amount is also kind of a joke.... just saying.
Easy and fun
All my students love it when I use the app in class. It's a great way to keep them doing something productive on their phones. Love it!
This does what it says it does. It takes some time to make it interesting but it can increase engagement.
Not much use for teachers
I wish the app did more. I have limited view of my library, I can launch a lesson, and I can join a lesson. No real advantage or use for having the app.
Well Ill start off with "this is sooooo cool!" I was so happy with learning about this engaging concept that can utilize our new iPads that I asked my principal to come see! She was more than thrilled because our students were fully engaged and I could see who wasnt grasping the concept right before my eyes which gave me the opportunity to reteach it right on the spot! So I bragged to my counterparts and then we kept getting errors on our next session! There are some kinks but both me and my students love it-- for now AND its perfect for PSSA review lessons! Im willing to pay $10 monthly for it just for my kids! I learned about this program at a PA Technology Expo Conference in Hershey PA....xoxo Happy Teacher
Not easy at all
I tried to set up for my classroom and I could not connect to my school email. I could not get support to reset the email and I am comfortable with technology. Nearpod just makes it impossible to get support!
