I joined a self paced webinar “Nearpod & Google” and I learned a lot of relevant insight to integrate Google Apps. I gained practical skills to share a nearpod lesson with Google Classroom, convert Google Slides presentation to Nearpod lesson, and include Google Docs, Sheets, Form in my nearpod lesson.

Since I’ve been using Google Suites for Education, Nearpod will be powerful tools for me to enhance dynamic interaction in my class. I can easily apply what I’ve learned by turning all my Google Slides presentation to Nearpod lesson so I can add several activities such as open ended question, poll, collaborate, quiz to make my presentation more engaging.
