Pear Deck Overview

What is Pear Deck?

Pear Deck is a cloud-based student engagement platform that enables schools to organize synchronous and asynchronous classes for remote students, enhance group discussions, and track participation in real-time. Features include presentation streaming, screen locking, a countdown timer, and team communication.

The application helps teachers create courses and assessments with interactive questions, polls, or quizzes and aggregate and sort candidate responses for review. Students can join sessions anonymously through a link received via email and add answers to questions while navigating the slides. Using the instructor-paced session mode, mentors can control the pace of slides, collect and display candidates' replies in real-time, and save session decks for upcoming classes.

Pear Deck offers integration with various third-party applications such as Gmail, Google Drive, Microsoft Teams, Schoology, Canvas, and more. The dashboard helps mentors evaluate answers, hide or highlight responses in projector view, and provide individual feedback to candidates. Using Takeaways, teachers can leave comments in editable Google Docs and allow students to view their submitted answers.

Pear Deck is at the Top Of My Must Have List

Pros

I love how easy it is to insert interactive slides into an existing presentation! The templates entice students to participate and make it very easy and fast to up the level of a Google Slides presentation to something kids have to interact with. I also find it helpful that the slides can be used by synchronous or asynchronous. The free version is great too!

Cons

This program is expensive and out of reach for most teachers to pay out of pocket. I had some difficulty using it at my school due to district web controls. At home it was great!

Positive!

Pros

As a teacher it is nice to be able to connect with students in class in a remote way. Students can add there thoughts, opinions, and ideas to a class discussion without necessarily needing to speak. Gives even the shyest student a voice.

Cons

Not completely user friendly. Takes a few times to figure out how to use and implement.

Fairly easy to learn on my own and implement within my class.

Pros

This program removed the distractions of students moving to other internet distractions. All students worked at the same pace and answers were displayed anonymously to avoid embarrassment.

Cons

Some of the extra features like adding music was not as easy as it appeared.
