As a teacher in an Urban district with limited resources during the pandemic, I have discovered 2 new tools to help teach hybrid/remote learners.
The first one is Nearpod. Nearpod allows me to make presentations interactive and provide various means of engagement to students via the computer. I can conduct polls, small assessments, and collaborative boards. The most powerful tool is that I can have the students "draw it" as they complete a math problem on their own slide and can watch their "papers" and provide feedback in real time. Unfortunately, I am running out of Nearpod "space" as I currently only have the free plan.
I would like to upgrade to the gold plan

Furthermore, I used to have Google form style quiz once a week. I have discovered that I can use quizizz.com to make the quizzes more "gamified" and more engaging to the students. It also links directly to Google classroom and auto corrects and I can provide feedback also. Unfortunately to use all the features I need I need to pay 5 dollars a month.
I appreciate any donation and thank you for your consideration.
