How I Use It
Peardeck allows me to turn my google slides powerpoint into an interactive activity where students can write, type, or draw their work right on the screen. This has helped me transform lecture style lessons into something so much better and gives the students the freedom to respond to questions however they please. My favorite feature is seeing the whole classes' responses being created in real time as they answer questions.
My Take
I like Peardeck a lot. It is easy to use and implement. It's a very simple add-on to google slides and gives me all the tools I would like. Peardeck itself is a great way to get students to interact with the power points you make yourself. It has helped me rethink how I make power points and how I like to use them in the classroom.
