I recently presented a workshop on “Cool tools for data collection,” where the participants learned about Quizizz, and Kahoot. One of the newer tools out is Pear Deck. I haven’t had a chance to try it out, but it puts a jolt of energy into powerpoint slides and makes them become interactive with your students. Pear Deck gives users the ability to use the tool for free up to three projects. You get limited features but the free version gives you the opportunity to get a feel of the tool before you purchase more options with the paid version.
This tool is pretty easy to use as it interacts with your google account to save your slides there. If you know how to use powerpoint, the Pear Deck set up will not be difficult for you. Below I found a great article on comparing Quizizz, Kahoot and Pear Deck . If you give it a try, comment to me as to how you like the tool and how it could be used as a social work and data collecting tool. Have fun!
