On-Demand Museum on the Move Lessons

Thank you for joining us for the Museum on the Move On-Demand Virtual Lessons! For this modality of virtual lessons you will not need to schedule a class. The platform we are using for our Utah state core curriculum-aligned On-Demand Classes is Nearpod. Nearpod is a simple-to-use online teaching program that provides interactive activities to students and complete reports of their progress and responses to teachers.

We will provide you with a link to a copy of our Nearpod lesson. If you do not have a Nearpod account yet, you will need to create one to use the class as an instructor. It is really easy to create the account, especially if you have a Google account, and you can use it for free. UEN has a partnership with Nearpod; therefore, Utah teachers from all the school districts have access to a licensed Nearpod account.
