Teachers and students all over the world have learned to adapt to a whole new world of teaching and learning this year. Thankfully, there are so many different platforms available to use that make it possible to teach students through both hybrid and remote.

One of those platforms is Nearpod, where teachers can present lessons or administer assessments to every student, whether they are in school or at home. During these lessons and assessments, students are able to respond through text, drawings, and even pictures they take of their work.

This all happens in real time, so teachers are able to watch as students work, allowing them to help when needed. Our 3rd grade students have stepped up to the hybrid learning challenge. Not only have they come to love using Nearpod, but have become quite proficient as well. Our students have blown us away with their ability to adapt. They inspire us!

Los profesores y estudiantes de todo el mundo han aprendido a adaptarse a un mundo completamente nuevo de enseñanza y aprendizaje este año. Afortunadamente, hay tantas plataformas diferentes disponibles para usar que hacen posible enseñar a los estudiantes tanto de forma híbrida como remota.

Una de esas plataformas es Nearpod, donde los maestros pueden presentar lecciones o administrar evaluaciones a cada estudiante, ya sea en la escuela o en casa. Durante estas lecciones y evaluaciones, los estudiantes pueden responder a través de texto, dibujos e incluso fotografías que toman de su trabajo.

Todo esto sucede en tiempo real, por lo que los maestros pueden observar cómo trabajan los estudiantes, lo que les permite ayudar cuando sea necesario. Nuestros estudiantes de tercer grado se han enfrentado al desafío del aprendizaje híbrido. No solo han llegado a amar el uso de Nearpod, sino que también se han vuelto bastante competentes. Nuestros estudiantes nos han asombrado con su capacidad de adaptación. ¡Nos inspiran!
