Build engaging lessons. Or use one of ours.

Pear Deck works like any slide presentation program you’re used to. In fact, you can even import your old PowerPoints, Google Slides, and PDFs to turn them into powerful interactive Pear Decks right from your Google Drive.

Looking for some inspiration? Take a look at our example activities for many subjects and grade levels.

Connect your class.

As soon as you start presenting, your students can join on any device with a web browser. Their Google for Education account and a simple code is all they need to participate.

Do you use Google Classroom? We’re integrated to make inviting your whole class roster even easier.

Hear from every student. Every time.

Pear Deck brings the classroom “clicker” into the 21st century with not only multiple choice-style questions, but text responses, numbers, drawings, draggable pins on images, and more.

Every learner grapples with the interactive activity on his or her own screen, and knows their response will be anonymous to the rest of the class. This makes it less scary to participate and makes it clear that we expect every single person in the room to be thinking and engaged.

Deep insight for you.

As an instructor, you can quickly see what each individual thinks on the instructor-only session console. Noticing a lot of wrong answers? Adapt! Take a pause, back up, re-explain.

But don’t forget to help the learners help each other: Why did some people choose this while others chose that? How can we find out the right answer? What else do we need to know?

Bring everyone together.

The unique Pear Deck projector view allows all answers to be displayed anonymously on the projector screen with the tap of a button. This provides the room an opportunity to learn from other answers, notice patterns, identify mistakes, and discuss each other’s ideas.

Extending the lesson. Keeping families in the loop.

When class is finished, all of your students’ answers from your lesson are saved in their own individual Google Doc. Each student has the ability to view your questions and their answer side-by-side. Below each response, students have the opportunity to reflect metacognitively on their own answer, sharing their thought process and points of confusion. You can even share the Doc with parents or tutors so they can be kept up-to-date on the student’s progress and weaknesses.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It...

Stacey Roshan - Bullis School

Using Pear Deck I can really dig deeper. I can start the deeper-understanding type questions and that leads to a discussion. It's not that they're just submitting an answer.
