I use Pear Deck EVERY SINGLE DAY to connect with my 300+ students. It helps me to check in with every one of them to see how they’re doing and make connections with them.

Crystal Bobier, teacher, Waukee Schools

I love to use Pear Deck Factory with Spanish vocabulary. Sometimes I will use it as an anticipatory activity and sometimes I will use it to review learned vocabulary. Students love to work together and show everyone what they created during the quality control. I love how I can quickly give the entire class immediate feedback.
