The cool thing about Nearpod is its interactivity. You simply upload a powerpoint presentation to Nearpod, add video clips, quizzes, polls or graphs and publish it. Students access your presentation with a pin and then see it on their phones. You control the presentation on your computer and advance the slides with your lecture.
I created an introductory lesson to Islam. It includes three short video clips (each less than 3 minutes), links to three different websites for research, and three short formative quizzes.
Here's how I did it. I took an existing powerpoint about Islam, uploaded it to Nearpod and then began editing it by adding video clips in strategic places (for example, a clip about the Five Pillars after a slide outlining them). Next I added a couple of short multiple choice questions about the video.
In another area of the powerpoint, I added a link to a webpage about jihad, then another video clip about it.
You can see my effort below. Just remember it's my first one and not by any means perfect.
