Pear Deck & GoGuardian are Teaming Up to Transform Digital Learning
Pear Deck Team
We are excited to announce that Pear Deck is teaming up with GoGuardian as part of a strategic merger! We want to share with you why we’re teaming up with GoGuardian and what this announcement means for you, our trusted partners, and educators.
From the beginning, the Pear Deck team focused on helping teachers create powerful learning moments for every student, every day. We did so by creating solutions that guide teachers towards best practices for instruction, transforming student devices from distractions to conduits for engaging students, and building stronger school communities. Today, our simple, instructionally-effective tools are used by millions of students and teachers around the world. We are continually inspired by the dedication, determination, and sheer creativity of educators using Pear Deck.
We’ve been following GoGuardian since they hit the scene. It was clear early on that the team behind GoGuardian is truly visionary. Their solutions help educators identify learning patterns, protect students from harmful and distracting content, and support at-risk students. They’re solving some of the most complex problems schools face, and their solutions are used to engage and protect over 10 million students across the United States.
As we began getting to know the GoGuardian team, we quickly realized how closely aligned we are in our mission, vision, and drive to support educators. Pear Deck and GoGuardian share the belief that we need to leverage technology thoughtfully to help students engage in the world with reason, honesty, and empathy. We’ve both been working on the same problem — how to make school safe, engaging, and equitable for every student — but from different perspectives. Together, we can advance our shared mission and create new solutions that help educators do their best work in environments where students can thrive.
That is why we are so excited about today’s announcement. This news won’t change what you know and love about Pear Deck. Our commitment to educators and students remains our first and highest priority. Our awesome sales and customer support teams will continue to provide you with the best possible service, and we’ve got some exciting releases planned in December to help you do your best work.
Over time, we know that partnering with GoGuardian will allow us to dream bigger and start working on innovative solutions to some of your biggest challenges. As always, we’ll be listening closely to your feedback and suggestions and keeping you informed every step of the way. For answers to more specific questions, please visit our FAQs.
We are grateful to do our part to support educators and learners worldwide. We’re looking forward to the journey ahead with you and our new teammates!
