    In this workshop School and District level administrators will get started with Nearpod as an administrator to use it when engaging educators and stakeholders. Participants will know how to log in, create, edit and launch lessons in both Live and Student-Paced modes. We will also explore several instructional strategies that are supported directly by Nearpod and what an administrator should see if the teachers are using Nearpod to its fullest potential and suggestions to support teachers who are not.
