Make Thinking Visible in 1:1 Classrooms with Nearpod
February 28 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Event Description | John Hattie, the author of Visible Learning, researched many factors that had an impact on student learning. He found that one of the most impactful changes a teacher can make in instruction is to provide students with quality feedback in a timely manner. Nearpod, a tool that combines presentations, assessments, guided website access, and interactions like polls, open-ended questions, and drawing enables teachers to provide feedback immediately. A teacher can easily create an entire lesson within Nearpod, and receive real-time data on student responses to quizzes, questions, drawings and polls. How often have you had to wait until you reviewed student work in the evening to then let them know the next day where they had misconceptions about the material presented. This hands-on session will include participation in a Nearpod lesson to experience the students’ perspective, and then development of your own lesson, including all of the interactive components.
Be sure to bring your laptop, Chromebook, or tablet, as this will be a hands-on session.
