Nearpod training is September 12th for middle and high school teachers and September 14th for elementary teachers. We hope to offer training again in the Spring.
Nearpod is a K-12 subscription this year for the first time in Hall County Schools. We have added a tile on LuanchPoint for the teacher which currently presents the chance to login via Google account (make sure you select your HallCo email). For students, the icon takes them to the screen where they can “join” a Nearpod lesson.
Canvas Integration is a big deal for our district. We have already made Nearpod available in your Canvas Course and you can add Student-paced Nearpods as Canvas Assignments. Check out these step-by-steps Nearpod provides – select Canvas Guide.

How Does Nearpod Work?
Nearpod is an engagement tool that allows teachers to send content to student devices in real time and give students the opportunity to send teachers responses to questions in the form of interactive activities. See the video below which shows how to launch a session and the view the students will have on their devices.
Watch the video below and consider how Nearpod could enhance your curriculum.
