It’s been a little while in the making, but I have now become a published Nearpod Author! It took a little time because I typically used Nearpod as an assessment/activity tool. I didn’t use it in a classroom for explaining a concept. Usually, I used a Nearpod lesson after instruction was given. Nearpod’s Author Program wants lessons that are fully developed to teach a concept and assess the students’ understanding. Lessons need to include video and websites which introduce or reinforce the concept presented. They have a great checklist and resources to create visually appealing lessons. I’m excited to have an opportunity to assist other educators with lessons that they can use in their classrooms. If you use Nearpod and are interested in becoming a Nearpod Author take a look here.
So far I have lessons developed for 1st-2nd Grade Math on topics of Time, Geometry, Skip Counting, Money, & soon to be Graphs. Each lesson has been Common Core aligned and take approximately 40 minutes to deliver. Embedded below is an example lesson on Money.
