Pear Deck for Interactive Presenting
Pear Deck is an awesome company with very fun pear graphics. But they are more than great graphic design, Pear Deck brings interactivity to your Google Slides and PowerPoint presentations.
Reduce Look at Me
I am into student centered classrooms. My eduwish is to eliminate the front of the room. When students have individual devices it is easier to have your technology point at students rather than point to the front of the room. Pear Deck allows you to choose a presentation tool (Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint) and have students join the presentation. The slides appear on their screen as you progress through the slides.

Replacing the slide in the presentation, student see a screen that allows them to drag, draw, vote, or respond.
