Created by Educators for Educators, Pear Deck creates interactive presentations for 100% student engagement and real-time formative assessment. With options to build presentations from scratch, or import existing Google Slides or PDFs, Pear Deck makes it as easy as possible to start engaging every student in every row of the classroom.
Their library of existing sample lessons provides great examples on how to use the 5 Pear Deck interactive question types, embed youtube videos or web pages. The recently launched Student-Paced mode allows teachers the option to send Pear Deck home with students for homework, or administer in class quizzes. With unlimited storage and sharing capabilities, the options are endless.
