Nearpod featured as an ‘Essential’ App for Education

May 7, 2014The Nearpod Team
Hello Nearpod Community!

Once again, we want to thank each and every one of you for all the support and the positive feedback we get from you every day.  Thanks to our users’ recognition, Apple  has included Nearpod in an exclusive list of ‘essential’ apps for education: The compilation is  entitled ‘Teacher’s Starter Kit’.  We are extremely honored to appear alongside some “edu-awesome” tools such as Evernote, Edmodo, Brainpop, ClassDojo, and WolframAlpha.

As a way to thank you – and in celebration of teacher’s appreciation week- we’ve made some of our most popular paid presentations FREE as a gift for the week! 


Also, we thought we’d compliment Apple’s compilation with a “Starter Kit” of our own, which you can share with your colleagues and students (yes, students are creating Nearpod presentations, too!)

So here goes our “Nearpod Starter’s Kit“ 

  • If this is your first time using Nearpod, this quick tutorial will introduce you to the basics of our platform.
  • When you’re ready to get creative with Nearpod’s interactive features yourself, this guide will teach you everything you need to know to start creating your own presentations.
  • And when you’re ready to dig a bit deeper, you can incorporate some other powerful educational tools and resources as part of your Nearpod presentations. Even if you don’t teach math, this list will get you thinking about the possibilities of integrating Nearpod as part of your classroom instruction.
  • Finally, this list will give you ideas to integrate Google Apps with Nearpod.

The entire Nearpod team is proud and thankful for this incredible recognition, and we can’t wait to see what other possibilities creative teachers will bring out of our versatile platform.
