Nearpod helps classrooms leverage the iPad for learning — from by Justin Lee


Increasingly, technology is being used in the classroom to help students learn, from university lectures available online for free, to startups tackling issues like adaptive learning. One startup attempting to leverage the power of technology for the classroom is Nearpod, a project by Panarea Digital that looks to leverage the power of tablets to help classrooms run more efficiently. Equipped with an iPad and the Nearpod app, students in the classroom can study in a synchronized environment. ”Our mission is to create tools for mobile devices that will significantly improve the quality and cost of delivering education,” said Nearpod co-founder Guido Kovalskys in an interview.
