Engage Every Student in your Google Classrooms

Pear Deck makes it easy to plan and build interactive lessons directly from your Google Drive that promote active learning in the classroom. As students interact with the lesson, real-time data provides instructors the feedback they need to adapt teaching on-the-fly.

How does Pear Deck work?

1 Build Your Deck

Create a new Pear Deck from Google Drive then use our superbly designed editor to quickly create static, multiple choice, Draggable™, or free response slides—or simply import slides from Powerpoint (or any presentation building software) as a PDF.

2 Start a Session

Launch a unique presentation session straight from the editor to students in your class via your Google Apps for Education domain. Our Google Chrome extension even lets you launch the presentation on their device with no cooperation required.

3 Engage Your Students

Students follow along on their device and respond to the unique question types when prompted. As the teacher, your device can isolate individual or groups of answers to put on the projector for further discussion or review.

Create Compelling Questions with Unique Interactions
