Use @PearDeck to Analyze Incorrect Answers, Discuss Model Student Work, & Other Ideas/Inspiration #edtech

I don’t make genius decks. Most of them are quite simple and ordinary. For me, it’s more about the way that I use Pear Deck itself to engage each student in the classroom, get a sense of individual and group needs, highlight student work anonymously, allow students to ask questions without having to raise their hand, etc… In a traditional class discussion, students must raise their hands to respond and might be conscious of what their peers think of their answer. Pear Deck removes this barrier by displaying responses without names (teachers can go back later to a separate dashboard to review by individual). Thus, the teacher can talk about and analyze the incorrect answers without calling any individual student out. And they can display ‘model’ answers so that students can learn from their peers versus the teacher always being the one to share his/her work as the correct answer.
