Hammond Westside Montessori's fourth grade teacher, Rebecca Cullen, is using a program called Nearpod to lead instruction in her classroom this week. Nearpod is an online program that is free for teachers and students, and allows for interactive mobile presentations that teachers create and customize themselves. Ms. Cullen checked out a Tech Tub with a set of iPads from the Tangipahoa Parish School System’s Technology Department for her students to use. She is giving her students a sneak peak at PARCC like questions that they will complete at the end of the review. Students interact and submit responses on the iPads to the lessons delivered through the Nearpod program.
Nickson Elidor, Foreign Language teacher at HEEM is working with his 7th grade students using an app on the TechTub iPads to identify family members in Spanish.
