Pear Deck

Pear Deck allows both teachers and students to add the power of interactive questions to Google Slide presentations! Imagine if every student in the classroom was engaged each and every day. With the Pear Deck for Google Slides Add-on, teachers can add the magic of Pear Deck’s formative assessments and interactive questions to make direct instruction more informative. Teachers are able to use a variety of question types to check for understanding in their classroom. They can add Pear Deck questions ahead of time or on the fly to check comprehension and gauge whether or not they need to re-teach to individual student needs. When teachers use Pear Deck they are able to adapt instruction based on student understanding and students can receive feedback in real time. Pear Deck is a web-based tool, which means it works on so it works on any device.

 

 

Students also have access to Pear Deck’s Flashcard Factory! This tool transforms the way students are able interact with and build on their vocabulary. Students pair up together to create dynamic and engaging flashcards through illustrating and defining relevant terms. Students can then use these flashcards to practice and study their new words.
