In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, educators continuously seek innovative ways to enhance student engagement and foster meaningful learning experiences. That’s why Pear Deck has joined forces with Be Internet Awesome, a program to teach online safety produced by Google, and Roblox, a global platform that brings people together through play.

With gamified learning, students are more likely to retain information when they are actively engaged in the learning process, and the combination of Pear Deck's interactive platform with Be Internet Awesome's digital citizenship curriculum and Roblox's experience creation generates an ideal environment for immersive and effective learning experiences.

A free dig cit curriculum with everything teachers need to help students learn to be safe explorers of the online world, Pear Deck’s partnership with Google’s Be Internet Awesome helps learners better understand and interact within the digital landscape. Each Pear Deck template provides educators with a simple way to introduce a concept related to digital literacy and guide students through related activities.

Pear Deck worked closely with Roblox to create a series of lessons to get students excited about coding and digital content through Roblox’s immersive 3D educational experience. Now, every student has the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of coding, design, and digital safety with the help of standards-aligned Pear Deck templates.

These collaborations showcase the immense potential of immersive collaborative learning in enhancing student engagement and fostering a love for learning. By bringing interactive lessons into the classroom, educators can empower students to take charge of their learning journeys while developing essential digital skills. This combined work represents a transformative step towards creating a future-ready generation that is well-equipped to navigate the complexities of the digital age with confidence and responsibility.
