For the last three years, the district has provided 100 licenses to teachers in grades K-12 to use Nearpod. We have received great feedback from the teachers using this application. Nearpod also recently added the Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship lessons along with lessons to support Social Emotional Learning.
These reasons have led us to purchase a license for all teachers to use Nearpod
This year you will be able to find all of the Digital Citizenship Lessons for your grade level through Nearpod. Nearpod can be accessed through Clever by clicking on the icon and logging in with Google. Once in Nearpod, you can click on Mentor Exempted Village Library found in the left toolbar. In the library, you will see a folder for each grade level where the Digital Citizenship lessons can be found.
Common Sense Media just released updated Digital Citizenship lessons for all grade levels. Nearpod is currently converting their lessons to match this new curriculum. We will be updating those lessons in Nearpod as soon as they become available. You will see a
label on each of these updated lessons. Feel free to use the lessons from last year, these
lessons as they become available (or a combination) to implement the Digital Citizenship curriculum this year. If you want to learn more about Nearpod, Mrs. Roediger will have sessions during the PD Day on August 14th.
