Nearpod is a presentation tool that allows users to add their own content or edit existing content from the Nearpod Library. Engage in person and virtual learners by adding interactive elements to your lesson.


Are you already using video to engage learners? EdPuzzle allows teachers to easily embed self-created Screencastify videos. Or, add videos that already exist from YouTube, National Geographic, Ted Talks, and more. Learn how to extend the use of video by adding multiple choice, open ended questions or notes to collect feedback from learners.

Choose any two sessions to attend - one SEL, one hybrid.
