Interactive teaching and software


NearPod is an excellent innovative platform that enables you to manage content on your students’ mobile devices. It combines presentation, collaboration, and real-time assessment tools, into one integrated solution.


PlayPosit is an online learning environment to create and share interactive video lessons. Begin with any online video (screencasts, Khan Academy, TED, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students, with time-embedded activities. 


Kahoot is a collection of questions on specific topics, created by you, asked in real-time, to an unlimited number of “players/students”, creating a social, fun and game-like learning environment.
