Overview
Why Use Pear Deck?
Get 100% student engagement immediately


Students understand class material better.
Students are more interested in the material.
You know which students are stuck, who’s ready for more, and what’s confusing them.
You can give every student a voice, even the shyest or most reticent.
In 2015, we worked with the NYC Department of Education Office of Innovation & EdTech iZone and Johns Hopkins University to study the efficacy of Pear Deck in the classroom. The study found 65% of students agreed that Pear Deck helped them understand class material better, and 61% reported that it increased their interest in class material.




How it works:
Pear Deck lets students interact with your presentation from any device. 


Transform existing Google Slides, PPTs or PDFs into interactive presentations, or choose to build your presentation from scratch. Add in temperature checks, formative assessments, discussion prompts, diagnostics, or exit tickets. 
Invite every student to join your presentation from their devices so they can interact with the material and respond to prompts. You can also choose to turn on student-paced mode to allow students to work at their speed in the classroom or at home. 
See student responses in real time to get a quick temperature check on student understanding
Share anonymous answers on the projector screen to spark debate, make every opinion be heard, and discuss common misconceptions

Pear Deck is a great way to engage students in class and with the technology they are already using. As a teacher, it allows me to reach ALL of my students and keep them engaged throughout a lesson. Think of your quiet student in the back of the classroom that never raises their hand. Pear Deck is a way to reach those kids and see their thinking, without putting them on the spot in front of everyone. I can chose which responses to show on the board and student responses are anonymous to the class. My middle-school students enjoy challenging themselves to craft answers that might be deemed board-worthy. The Premium feature of draggables is one of our favorite features. It's a great way to stimulate discussion. I use Pear Deck in a wide variety of ways: review for tests, a quick check-up of homework reading, debate questions, and even having students draw/mark-up images or documents. It's a great way to make your classroom more student-centered.

Wonderful classroom extension, however, be warned - the site attempts to make a connection with YouTube (for obvious reasons), but in my school students are blocked from Youtube. So, I could connect with Peardeck presentations, but my students could not.

Why did they have to change the editor to make it only Google Slides compatible? It's twice as hard to make sessions and very tedious. Please bring back the old Pear Deck!

I am so happy to be using this software. My college classes are now engaged far more than they would be without it. And I LOVE the "takeaways" feature.

Every student is engaged and they don't even realize I'm getting formative assessment data!

This app has amazing potential to increase opportunities for formative assessment with our existing GAFE implementation.
