Nearpod and Flocabulary Partner with Clever to Save Teachers Time and Make Sign-on Easier for Students


Nearpod, the interactive, instructional platform that merges formative assessment and dynamic media to create engaging learning experiences,  today announced an expanded partnership with Clever, the most widely used single sign-on (SSO) portal in K-12 schools nationwide, to offer Clever’s rostering solution for schools and districts. This announcement also includes Flocabulary, a Nearpod company that uses educational hip-hop to engage students and increase achievement. With this partnership, schools using Nearpod and Flocabulary will have access to rostering and single-sign through the Clever platform at no additional cost.

According to Primary Sources: America’s Teachers on the Teaching Profession, teachers - on average - work 10 hours and 40 minutes a day. With this in mind, it is critical that educational technology is easy to use for both teachers and students, ensuring that it doesn’t add to the educator workload.

With Nearpod, teachers can upload existing materials and make them interactive in minutes, or download one of Nearpod 10,000 standards-aligned resources from the Nearpod Library. Nearpod’s seamless, accessible platform also provides teachers’ with real-time insights to student learning in an easy and intuitive way, and Flocabulary’s standards-aligned hip hop videos and supporting lesson materials are flexible and easy to use, so teachers can embed literacy and vocabulary into any subject in a way that also brings joy to their classroom.

“We know that time is one of the most valuable resources any educator has, and that when technology is difficult to use or access for teachers or students, it eats into this valuable time,” said Pep Carrera, CEO of Nearpod. “Through this expanded partnership with Clever, educators and students can easily access and use our products. Plus, teachers can spend more valuable instructional and planning moments doing what they do best, supporting their students and facilitating learning.”

This partnership builds on existing relationships both companies offering Clever SSO. By integrating with Clever’s rostering system, Nearpod and Flocabulary will be even easier to use with:  

  • Clever Badges to speed up student access, so students, as well as parents and guardians assisting with learning at home, can get into Nearpod or Flocabulary even faster
  • Single Sign-On for convenient, seamless log-in access to Nearpod and Flocabulary through Clever
  • Automated rostering and account updates that help all users get started immediately

“Teachers love Nearpod and Flocabulary for collaborative content that’s so highly engaging for their students,” said Trish Sparks, Vice President of Customer Success at Clever. “Our expanded partnership makes it easier than ever for educators to draw on these dynamic resources to transform learning for their students, wherever it takes place.”
