Technology Tip of the Week - Pear Deck

Pear Deck is like nearpod and socrative/tap it put together! You can use pear deck to create interactive presentations. Students are given a code to join your presentations, and you can embed questions and see your students' answers for quick feedback and engagement. Visit www.peardeck.com and watch the 45 second video on how it works! The best thing is that it connects to your Google Classroom!
