Nearpod is extremely useful, even in HS Soc Stud classes. My freshmen enjoyed the layout & pacing. I’m planning on using it again this year, with the accounts purchased by my district. Some of the pay-to-use Nearpods from other teachers are good, esp if they are in your state and meet same standards.


I love it. I spent the whole summer creating lessons for my first unit of the year. The kids also think it's fun to post their answers and see results right away.


I used it just a few times last school year and my students enjoyed it...we just played games.

So Nearpod is awesome. It tracks student participation because the lessons are really interactive. You can upload documents and have them use draw it to annotate and learn more about the topic. It’s been great. The assessments are graded on the spot. The kids get immediate feedback. They have a option similar to Kahoot also right on Nearpod. Overall it is a great data tracker too for distance learning.

Thanks for the feedback, looking for one spot for my students to do as much as possible instead of jumping around. Really appreciate your help

It's very good! Other teachers in my building didn't use it during the trial our school had so we didn't buy a school subscription. It's too cost preventative fir me to buy myself.

The free version still offers a lot though. We had a free COVID trial school license that recently expired but the free features are even better than when I checked it out pre-COVID.

We just started using it at our school because we were getting low participation from virtual and even face to face students who saw the virtual not participating. I put the questions I would normally ask out loud in Nearpod and grade it as a participation grade. Now everyone is participating. I have used the collaboration board after having them go to a site and tell me what they learned. So far so good.

Hi all, advice needed! My last day at work was 12/10, and my last paycheck was 12/15. However, my former company did not take me off payroll, and I received a check on 12/24 for $3000 (example figure, normal paycheck amount). I alerted my old company as soon as possible, asking they reverse it. Now, they say they cannot reverse it, and are asking me to mail them a check for $1500, made out to the company, and will issue me a W2C for tax purposes. Does this sound correct? More in comments

Anyone struggled with this? I’m 30; I like the idea of having kids but also was never my “dream”. I get along with my friends’ kids ok, though I’d 100% hire a lot of help(love my career and would like to retain some freedom—the idea of not going to be able to go away for a weekend w my girlfriends/my husband with no kids troubles me).My husband LOVES kids, he takes charge of nearly all of the house chores, so I’d have support. People say don’t do it unless 100% sure;I feel I’ll never get there?

Hello ladies, do you have a recommendation on Marketing 101 classes to take? I like having an official curriculum. With practical exercises and a teacher who gives you feedback. Maybe a few weeks long to a couple of months? There are so many references out there. I’m a great creative leader but I want to learn how to think like a head of marketing, and what their day to day, their expectations are like at a tactical level. Thank you! 🙏
