How to Transform Old PowerPoint Presentations

Transform your old PowerPoint presentations using Nearpod. No more death by PowerPoint for your students!

In the above 3-Minute Classroom Problem Solver video, Monica Burns explains step-by-step how to transform your old PowerPoint presentations with Nearpod.

Nearpod makes it simple to create engaging, interactive lessons that YOU control, while students interact with them from their devices. Use Nearpod to create new lessons from scratch, or import existing PowerPoint slides to Nearpod. You also have the option to include interactive activities, questions, quizzes, and polls, as well as online, pre-made lessons.

Mobile devices are great for individual exploration and personalized learning. But it's easy for students to get distracted or pulled in another direction, with so many options available via their mobile devices. Now, with Nearpod's help, you can control the content your students see on their screens.

For more information on Nearpod and similar tools, I recommend the on-demand training video, 5 Free Tools for Creating Powerful, Engaging Student Projects. Join technology expert Lauren Boucher as she explores five tools your students can use to create engaging student projects. Lauren will introduce these innovative tools and share sample project ideas for all levels. No more Death by PowerPoint!
