#Pearwell To 2017! Hello, 2018!

2017 has been a huge year for the Pear Deck team and our amazing community of educators. From the launch of our first ever game, Flashcard Factory, to the brand new Pear Deck for Google Slides Add-on, we’ve made leaps and bounds toward realizing our mission to create powerful learning moments for every student, every day.

We are thrilled to share that in 2017:

🎓 2 million students engaged with Pear Deck

🍐 Almost 1 million Pear Decks presented

🗺 Pear Deck was used in 96 countries

👍 Over 50 million moments of engagement recorded

🔥 Pear Deck for Google Slides was (and is!) Google’s #1 Add-On

While big numbers are cool, what we’re truly proud of and humbled by is what these numbers represent. Behind each moment of engagement are real teachers and students connecting with each other. And we believe that matters. That teachers and students connecting shapes an individual’s potential and desire to learn. That each student is a valued member of the classroom community who deserves the opportunity to add their unique ideas and voice to the mix. Everything we create at Pear Deck is built with those principles in mind.

So thank you to the more than 250,000 innovative educators who have embraced Pear Deck! Two million students using Pear Deck and 50 million individual moments of engagement?! That’s incredible. We can’t wait to see what this community creates in 2018.

Cheers to each and every one of you, and have a safe and happy new year!
