Nearpod is an excellent tool for creating engaging lesson that combine content knowledge with student activities and formative assessment tools. But it’s not the best tool for building lessons… until now!
As of this summer you’ll find a new button on your Nearpod Homepage that says “Create your own: Lesson in Google Slides”, check it out!
This is great. So great. Because now you don’t have to worry about copying or importing content from Google Slides into Nearpod and ending up with an image that you can’t edit. Now you can build right in Google Slides and add Nearpod interactive features as you go with the Nearpod Add-on.
Learn more by adding a copy of my Nearpod Transform SLC Google Slide Deck embedded below.
