Meet Pear Deck Learning

Learning happens over a lifetime through educational experiences and everyday interactions. It is a continuous process sparked by a student’s inherent natural curiosity – inspiration to explore, discover, and understand.

This curiosity prompts us to ask “what if”? It drives our imagination of what could be and empowers us to create change. 

At the heart of every classroom lies a unique ecosystem, a vibrant hub led by the expertise of an educator where learning flourishes through steadfast support, deep engagement, and active collaboration. 

Such a dynamic environment demands a foundation of tools that are not only intuitive to use, but also make a profound impact, catering to the entire educational journey of each student.

Over the last decade, the rise of classroom technology has brought numerous tools, each with its own promise of enhancing learning. However, educators are often served singular solutions, resulting in disjointed workflows for teachers and students.

Our tools use proven strategies and best practices to shrink achievement gaps and improve outcomes for students from every walk of life. We worked with a group of 80 teachers, 5,600 students, and 55 districts across the US to test our products in their classrooms and provide invaluable feedback, informing the design and development of our products.

This evolution has led to Pear Deck Learning — an innovative ecosystem redefining education and integrating tools for a dynamic and enriching classroom experience.
