Engaging students in the classroom and online: The use of Nearpod, a digital App which encourages active learning

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

This review outlines the use of Nearpod to support learning and teaching in both classroom and online environments. There has been increased attention in the literature on actively involving students in the classroom; this follows criticism of the traditional lectures which have been deemed by many as ineffective (Mikklesen, 2015). Nearpod is an educational tool which allows teachers to create, download and teach interactive lessons across all student devices (Nearpod, 2017). Student engagement can be significantly enhanced through the use of digital technology in the classroom (Darling-Hammond et al, 2014). Distraction and multitasking by students on their devices during class however can impact on their ability to remember and understand (Wood et al, 2011).
