Share the Pear – Exploring Pear Deck in the Classroom

Learning Tour Overview

Pear Deck can truly transform your teaching practice! With the Google Slides add-on you have interactive elements to traditional-style presentations. Creating a presentation using the Pear Deck add-on allows for powerful differentiation. Start a presentation whole class and see answers from ALL students in LIVE time. Give students Voice and Choice and have powerful digital discussion! You don’t just hear from one hand that goes up, you hear from EVERY student. Then, switch to student-paced mode and differentiate. Have students in a small group with you, while others continue on the Deck. Embed additional activities into your Deck for those who need to go further! Pear Deck also offers Flash Card Factory, a powerful vocabulary tool that promotes active learning while also integrating with the ever-popular Quizlet!
