My students are constantly engaging with the technology around them. At our school we are lucky to have access to more devices than ever before, but leveraging these tools into effective learning experiences instead of a distraction can be a struggle. This year, I want to use these devices to make my classroom more interactive and engaging using Nearpod.

Nearpod turns basic presentations into interactive lessons that includes polls, open-ended questions, and multimedia content that every student can engage with. I will also be able to monitor all of the devices and student answers to clear up any misconceptions in real-time. This platform will allow all students to be a part of the learning experience and can be differentiated to meet the needs of all the students in my classroom. Nearpod also has a full content library where I can get highly curated, standards aligned lessons. The best part? Some even come with Virtual Reality experiences! I can’t wait to show my students this awesome technology.

I will also have access to Nearpod’s Common Sense Digital Citizenship curriculum based on research from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education covering important topics like Cyberbullying, Online Safety, Privacy & Security, and more!

This all sounds great doesn’t it? This is where you come in. A Nearpod Gold Account costs $120 per year and your generous investment would give my students access to all of these amazing features. Help me make sure that this is not another year of dusty computer carts and unengaging software!

Here is the breakdown in cost for fundraising for Nearpod

  • Nearpod - $100.00
  • Preferred Partner Program - $11.80
  • PledgeCents Platform Fee - $5.90
  • Total - $118.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar)

If we do not meet our goal...

If I do not meet my goal I will least one license for a teacher piloting blended learning during classroom instruction.
