Free University of Manchester webinar: Teaching interactively using Nearpod

The Manchester Distance Learning Network is pleased to present this online webinar, which will be presented by Ella Sherman from Nearpod using Fuze Meeting.

Date: Wednesday, 14 May 2014 from 13:00 to 14:00

NearPod is an app that allows teachers to prepare lessons that combine presentation, collaboration and assessment and then manage how that information is then shared on a student’s mobile device. Teachers create a slide presentation using NearPod and then embed video and add polls, quizzes and activities. This presentation with all of its interactivity can then be delivered synchronously to a class using NearPod or distributed as homework for asynchronous lessons. The results of any polls, quizzes, etc are stored for retrieval by the teacher later on to monitor student performance, opinion, etc.
