Nearpod empowers teachers to create immersive learning experiences and explorations for their students using digital applications and virtual reality. Educators can create custom lesson plans, or use curriculum generated by other teachers, and then enhance their students’ experiences utilizing Nearpod’s digital elements to feel like interactive games and stories. Nearpod’s VR platform includes virtual field trips enabling children to visit historical landmarks and locations such as the Galapagos Islands and The Louvre.

Nearpod also provides educators with tools to communicate with their students, monitor their progress, and customize their learning experiences.
