Description

Why Use Pear Deck?
Get 100% student engagement immediately


Students understand class material better.
Students are more interested in the material.
You know which students are stuck, who’s ready for more, and what’s confusing them.
You can give every student a voice, even the shyest or most reticent.
In 2015, we worked with the NYC Department of Education Office of Innovation & EdTech iZone and Johns Hopkins University to study the efficacy of Pear Deck in the classroom. The study found 65% of students agreed that Pear Deck helped them understand class material better, and 61% reported that it increased their interest in class material.




How it works:
Pear Deck lets students interact with your presentation from any device.


Transform existing Google Slides, PPTs or PDFs into interactive presentations, or choose to build your presentation from scratch. Add in temperature checks, formative assessments, discussion prompts, diagnostics, or exit tickets.
Invite every student to join your presentation from their devices so they can interact with the material and respond to prompts. You can also choose to turn on student-paced mode to allow students to work at their speed in the classroom or at home.
See student responses in real time to get a quick temperature check on student understanding
Share anonymous answers on the projector screen to spark debate, make every opinion be heard, and discuss common misconceptions


Who uses Pear Deck?
Passionate teachers looking to engage every student in their classroom, every day.


Pear Deck lives in your Google Drive and integrates with Google Classroom, so G Suite for Education users have a completely Frictionless Setup to get started.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
