Nearpod has been used in classes to help young children learn how to write, aid teenagers in understanding algebra and even in Marketing postgraduate courses. So, why not use it in Law School? Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Civil Law and Legal Writing and Language were the chosen subjects in the first pilot program in the Faculdade de Direito Damásio de Jesus, in São Paulo, Brazil. Each professor used Nearpod in a way that worked best for them. Not only was each subject customized, but also each individual class. After a variety of diverse themes, the students were able to answer questions, see the results and watch videos. One example was a scene from Minority Report, used to incite further discussion in a Penal Law class. This is a classic example of how to use Nearpod. It can be used for different teachers and students, in different situations, each in its own unique way.
