Expected Outcomes
Student devices for student-paced learning
A modern technological innovation has arrived. Nearpod offers boundless possibilities and capabilities for teachers who are willing to extend their reach and provide learning experiences that are on par with schools around the globe. Teachers have the advantage of knowing the value of setting goals and determining their own as well as their students' learning needs. Teachers are encouraged to work closely with a Technology Coach who will resolve any connectivity issues. Notwithstanding, teacher comfort level plays a factor in technology integration. As with Nearpod or any technological tool, the SAM-R model will allow teachers a research based methodology for adopting the technology. They can further set realistic time-bound implementation goals for Nearpod. Lastly, students will get the opportunity to love the engagement and learning possibilities in their classes.
