NearPod is a one stop shop for integrating mobile devices in the classroom. NearPod provides both mobile and browser options for teachers to present materials, assess, and interact with students. Once the teacher loads the app s/he "pushes out" the material to all the student devices and has the option of presenting via teacher control or student control. If a student decides to minimize the App the teacher's dashboard receives an immediate notification of off task behavior. NearPod makes it possible for teachers to run quick formative assessments and check for understanding opportunities embedded throughout the lesson. NearPod's free version has some exciting features, but of course, the premium version offers many more options especially report management and increased interactivity.
