There are many parts to Nearpod, but the one that creates active learners in my classroom is Draw It.

My students love it and it gives me so much flexibility in and out of the classroom. I was using Nearpod in my AP Biology class and one of my students arrived late due to a dentist appointment. Just as he walked in the door I asked a question and he answered it. After seeing the astonished look on my face he explained that another classmate had texted him the presentation CODE and he had been following along the entire period so he hadn't missed anything!

App Reviews

  • So many amazing applications

    By Adeboondock
    I tried Nearpod in my classroom by uploading my ppt and adding a vr field trip at the beginning and a quiz at the end. My students, and dean, were blown away. It was incredibly easy to use and engaging. I tried a lesson I bought from their content store last week and I’m pretty sure my teaching life just got 37% easier. Love this app!
  • Overall Look

    By Rhyper419
    The overall functionality of the app is fine. However the styling of everything looks oddly like Snapchat. Some of the buttons, the font, the colour scheme used, the top of the screen that says "Explore" looks a LOT like Snapchat’s. The problem is that it doesn’t even look unique, it looks like they were too lazy with any styling ideas so it copied Snapchat’s and tweaked it a little. Just for the failure of making it look like a unique app and taking heavy inspiration from an app that is very clearly widely used, I’m giving this one star.
  • Fabulous, but kind of a tease

    By Sarah 1110
    A love what’s available...when I get to use it. The app continually crashes when I log in with Office. Won’t let me log in online with a device (app only) so I can’t prepare lessons at home. Free storage amount is also kind of a joke.... just saying.
  • Easy and fun

    By Cami🙋
    All my students love it when I use the app in class. It's a great way to keep them doing something productive on their phones. Love it!
  • Can’t even log into my account with the app

    By Dänqc
    I originally loved everything about it. Now I can’t even log into it. I have to use my computer and can no longer walk around while teaching. Every time I click on sign in with google the app stops and will not go any further. It’s very very frustrating
  • Nice app.

    By FNAFboi
    It works just fine in my classroom, only some really minor issues that don't really affect me.
  • Not easy at all

    By jmiller1991
    I tried to set up for my classroom and I could not connect to my school email. I could not get support to reset the email and I am comfortable with technology. Nearpod just makes it impossible to get support!
  • Tremendous Tool!

    By Dr. Knox
    This is a great app for adding all your lesson elements into a unified format.
