Pear Deck for Everyone!

Get ready to see your class come alive with this great interactive tool called Pear Deck. We now have the Premium Version of Pear Deck for all students and staff.  Some of you have been using Pear Deck, Nearpod, Kahoot, Quizziz, and other great tools to share interactive presentations, games, etc with students.  This tool has some very comparable features that I think you will love.  Give it a try and let me know how I can help.
