Pear Deck

OverviewSuggest Edit

Pear Deck helps schools optimize their 1:1 programs through interactive synchronized learning experiences.  A Pear Deck is a presentation displayed on a projector and student devices simultaneously. Teachers build interactive slides as a component of their presentation that invite or require responses on individual devices, and then display visualizations of aggregate data on the teacher’s dashboard or projector in real-time. Teachers can also see the data on their device alone, and save the responses for later study or evaluation. Teachers launch presentations on student screens with a single click, watch student answers come in, and engage the entire class in group discussions. Pear Deck blurs the line between instruction and assessment to promote active learning and data-driven instruction.
