Nearpod – the app to change teachers’ lives… Grand claims, but we are sticking by them!

Nearpod-133136In other words it lets a teacher guide students through lesson information (videos, websites, presentations, pdfs etc) while assessing their work (which they are all doing on their iPads) in realtime. Watch the video top right of the website – Nearpod also runs free Webinars. And you can read this interview with co-founder Felipe Sommer in Edtechdigest.

We strongly suggest you investigate this app or just go ahead and buy it and play with it. And yes, we think it will change your life…

iPad school workshops

We develop fun, project-based iPad workshops to help children explore curriculum and non-curriculum subjects in new and exciting ways. We come to schools with a crate of iPads preloaded with bespoke content and apps. Children spend a day creating their own digital content to bring the chosen topics to life. This content includes films, comic strips, stop motion animation, puppet shows, presentations, and live news bulletins using green screen technology. We typically provide all iPads for the workshops but schools with iPads may, of course, use their own.
