Good partnerships always start with both sides coming together for a common good.. This is for the sure the case with the new partnership between Common Sense Media and Nearpod. Nearpod needs continued exposure, especially as new competitors come on the market, so why not partner up with one of the new leaders in Digital Innovation and Citizenship. Common Sense was in need of a great way to make their lessons interactive and easier to present, so why not partner up with Nearpod. Now you can do all of Common Sense Media's digital citizenship lessons through Nearpod!
I have to say this might be my FAVORITE new thing to come out of ISTE. Both of these tools, are wonderful, and combining them makes DIgital Citizenship training in schools SO EASY. Obviously, both are great tools on their own to, but if you looking for a blog about that we can do that another day. Where this partnership really excels, is it makes the lessons even more interactive. Students can now watch the videos at their own pace. They can answer questions in Nearpod and the teacher can both keep the answer and share it out to the other students to help spark discussion. Really, this makes digital citizenship mean so much more for kids!
Now is it going to be free to everyone? No, your school must have a school account. With this partnership though, you now have another reason in your arsenal on why you should get Nearpod in your building.
