Pear Deck Add-on for Google Slides

The Pear Deck Add-on pairs Google Slides’ deck creation and presentation tools with Pear Deck’s real-time classroom presenter.

During my first few months at Pear Deck, I started working on a Pear Deck Add-on for Google Slides. The add-on pairs Google Slides’ deck creation and presentation tools with Pear Deck’s real-time-classroom presenter.

This project started back in 2017, and we’ve been making enhancements to design and functionality ever since it launched in October, 2017.

Since that time, the Pear Deck Add-on for Google slides has been installed by millions of teachers for use in their classrooms.
