What is Pear Deck?

Peardeck is an interactive presentation and assessment tool. Teachers create slide presentations (similar to Google Slides and PowerPoint) and control the flow of the presentation on student devices. They can collect feedback by adding interactive slides with text, multiple choice, numerical, and draggable response questions. The teacher controls the pacing of the presentation. When they advance a slide, the change is reflected on all student devices. The teacher can turn on and off student-paced mode. They can also create vocabulary flashcards in the Flashcard Factory and send them directly to Quizlet for practice.

What is set-up like?

Presentations are created within Google Slides. The first step is to install the Pear Deck add-on to add questions. Click on the Add-ons menu and choose “Get Add-ons”. Search for Pear deck and install the add-on. You will only need to do this once. Now you can open and use the Pear Deck add-on menu to choose from a variety of templates or create slides of your own. Click on the “Present with Pear Deck” button when you are finished creating the presentation. Students will use the code generated to join the session at joinpd.com. You may need to allow Pear Deck access to certain aspects of your Google Drive account throughout the process.

What type of data feedback is available?

Pear Deck is ideal for collecting in the moment feedback. Students respond anonymously to the questions on the slides. Results can be displayed by the teacher immediately after responding. The paid version allows the teacher to view individual responses. Teachers can also view a list of completed sessions and access data showing student responses.
