Switching Between Student Paced & Projector Modes in Pear Deck

Just wanted to give a big lovin’ shout out to Pear Deck’s student paced mode! I’m finding it a super efficient pre/post/mid classroom function! Last week for the first time I made what was normally a book section review a Pear Deck assignment. I had a link to the pages the kids needed to peruse for the section review available, as well as the student paced link in the calendar page. They were able to get to the assignment with everything they needed in the class’s calendar. One of my students was sick during that entire week, but did the assignment at home. When I had my 8th grade class working on it during class time, I switched modes to projector for displaying, but promptly switched back to student paced each time so they could advance through slides and work at their own pace. As the kids worked out these questions using their books, and notes as a guide, they worked together as I facilitated discussions among their table groups & friends carrying around my computer and constantly glancing at the dashboard to see what kids were doing in real-time. I occasionally displayed what they were working on, and we had much richer discussions about each question than we ever got when I just had them work these out individually on paper. p621p622p623p624p625 Many more of them did the questions correctly on this tough assignment and learned at a deeper level than any previous class! After the class, I reset the Deck back to student paced mode to allow for follow-up work any student might need to complete. Eventually,...
