I teach and wanted to use this for my class. Apple products are not common in our school due to cost. Would love to see this made available to Google platforms. I also don’t like that when the text is read by audio, you can’t see the page anymore. They really is not a good concept if you are trying to also encourage reading. I would love for that upgrade to be made as well.
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.
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.
