Pear Deck is an interactive presentation tool used to engage students in individual and group learning. Teachers can incorporate response-driven questions within their presentations which allows students to answer in real time. Anyone watching the presentation can simply log in from any device and engage the presenter, asking or responding to questions. When students answer questions, their teachers can display the results to the class.
What Pear Deck Offers
Effortless Google Integration
Pear Deck lives in the cloud and is integrated with Google Apps for Education, so you spend less time administering and more time engaging your students.
Put inquiry at the center of your lesson and create self-motivated learners. Ask questions that spark curiosity and challenge intuition instead of just delivering the facts.
Individual Plus Social Learning
