Nearpod is a wonderful engagement tool many teachers love to use in their classrooms. Students can follow along with a teacher’s lesson and collaborate with each other. However, we still need to keep student safety at the forefront of our minds. It’s great to have students together in a digital environment, but we still need to remember learning comes first. Nearpod incorporates a few things to help keep students safe while they are in your Nearpod lesson.
- First, require students to validate their names with their Office 365 account. This will help you to know who is really in your classroom.
- Next, approve posts on the collaborate board before your students can see them and delete those which are inappropriate.
- Finally, you can always remove students from your session who are being disruptive.
