Working in a 1:1 iPad implementation has been a challenging job for me. I am always on the lookout for great tools that I can share with my staff that will allow them to use the technology in a more purposeful way. I strive to lead them into technology usage that will stimulate creativity in the classroom for both students and teachers. I recently discovered NearPod as a tool that can allow teachers to create stimulating presentations and have them play on all student iPads. Using this tool, teachers and students can interact with each other in the lesson, giving students an opportunity to participate in the lesson alongside the teacher. I have linked a video below that explains more.
