This class uses NearPod, which is a separate online resource. Parents and/or guardians, please read the announcements page prior to class to get your learner set up before class begins. Your learner may also need help throughout the lesson to complete the games and use the features. This class is for very young learners who may not fully understand how to click on a computer or set up NearPod on their own. Each class will require the use of NearPod. I will send out the specific link and code within the hour prior to the class start time as a classroom post. NearPod is necessary to participate! I do not share my screen. Please come to class prepared.
www.nearpod.com or the NearPod application on a tablet/phone will be used. The link and code to the lesson content for each week will be updated in the classroom page the hour prior to class by me. **You do NOT need to create a NearPod account to join the lesson.
