Postcards from Peary: Virtual Field Trips with Pear Deck
Pear Deck Team
Learning is a journey of discovery, and Pear Deck makes it easy to travel around the world without ever leaving the classroom! Regardless of topic or grade level, the world is full of possibilities when it comes to using virtual tours as part of your lesson.
Bring math to life by exploring the pyramids of Egypt!
Reading Hamlet? Take a tour of a castle!
Learning about fjords? Explore Greenland!
It’s easy to use virtual tours to design immersive experiences in Pear Deck — just create a Website Slide in the Pear Deck sidebar and embed your link! As long as the site is secure and embeddable, students can interact with the website without ever leaving your Pear Deck presentation. (Looking for great images and videos to create your virtual field trips? Try searching Google Earth, 360Cities, or AirPano.) Learn how to embed these tours on our Knowledge Base!
To get you started, we’ve even created three ready-to-teach Pear Deck templates with embedded virtual tours — download your copies using the links below!
