A powerful use of technology is the ability to see what each of our students is “thinking”.
- Look through a window into their ideas.
- Give every student a chance to present their solution.
- Get a glimpse into skills students have mastered and what concepts need more time.
Peardeck is a web-based tool, accessible on any device, that gives you opportunities for this! Many teachers loved Infuse Learning, a web tool that has exited the market as of April. Peardeck has the capabilities of Infuse Learning - and more! The power of Peardeck starts with the ability of a teacher to share documents or presentations from Google Apps for Education quickly and easily. Students enter a simple code at www.peardeck.com to access the presentation. During the lesson, the teacher can then ask students a question - multiple choice, short answer, drawing right on top of a teacher selected image, drawing in a grid, and more. The teacher can lock responses, and then project all of the student responses to engage students in a rich conversation.
Check Peardeck out, and see the power for yourself!
**While not all features of Peardeck are available for free, the free version of Peardeck is very robust and includes all of the features listed above.**
