Pear Deck for Google Slides

What is Pear Deck?

Pear Deck is an interactive presentation tool used to actively engage students in individual and social learning. Teachers create presentations using their Google Drive account. Students log into the presentation with unique access codes and interact with questions while teachers monitor student and whole-class progress. Pear Deck is a freemium service; teachers and schools can access a wide array of tools and resources for free or opt to subscribe to a premium account.

  • Multiple Choice - functions like an instant poll of your class
  • Numerical Response - showing the results on a number line
  • Open-Ended - allow students to answer questions in their own words
  • Draggable & Drawable - students can label and draw right on their devices
  • You can also choose from the extensive library of template slides to get your students actively involved with your lesson.
