Nearpod is a unique app that lets teachers facilitate a lesson from their iPad as the students participate with polls, quizzes, PDFs, drawing tools and more.

Content is prepared in advance and uploaded into the teacher's profile. Teachers then "launch" the lesson to either a small group or whole class. Students engage in the activity while the teacher can control the pace. When the teacher is ready to move on to the next thing, they can swipe their iPad and the activity changes on the student devices.

Students complete interactive activities by clicking Submit and their work appears on the teachers screen. Teachers immediately receive feedback of any student work turned in so teaching moments are not lost. They are immediate.

Teachers are able to share student work anonymously with class to identify student errors or model multiple ways to solve one problem. Students learn as much from mistakes as they do successes and I think that is one of Nearpod's greatest features.
