#8 Nearpod #12appsDIT

20Dec16

Way way behind with #12appsDIT but determined to get through at my own pace!

Nearpod looks good as well….an app that is student orientated.

Pluses: encourages student voice, creativity, interactive, you have to think, deeper learning, engagement, students as producers of knowledge not just consumers, easy to use, across multiple devices, peer learning, generates digital resources to reuse, student paced or live lesson option

Minuses: can still get distracted in an app, need wifi, uses loads of battery, does everyone have a smartphone

Main thing (and I keep coming back to this)….pedagogy before technology, align use to learning outcomes, important that the teacher can use competently…teacher practice & student experience!
