Logging In Students to Pear Deck: Give Them A Link!

Hello there!  Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend!  I am back today with more Pear Deck How Tos. 
                    I made this image at Canva.  If you want to 
                    try making your own graphics, head on over!

*In order to use Pear Deck, you need to add it to your Google Classroom.  You also need to log into the Chrome Browser.  Once you have added Pear Deck, you can take any slide deck and make it interactive.  

How To Give Your Students A Link

For remote learning and younger students, I recommend this log in method.  Here is how to post a link in the chat (where students love to go!):



 












With "in person" remote learning, I tend to adapt my lessons to Instructor Paced.  If you want to go the Student Paced route, you would post the link right in your Google Classroom.

As with everything, there is a learning curve to this.  It takes the students a while to get logged on.  Of course, at least one student gets "kicked off," and you need to repost the link to your lesson in the chat.  

My favorite way to use Pear Deck is to incorporate it with Break Out Rooms.  This way the para can work with students in a small group.  Again, adding this element takes practice.

Please try this out, and let me know how you do.  If I can make the instructions clearer and easier to follow, I would love to know!

Have a wonderful long weekend!
