How to use Classroom Climate

Classroom Climate gives teachers an extra layer of insight into how students are learning. By gathering feedback about student mood and feelings of achievement, teachers can gain insight into the success of a lesson while helping students become more self-aware.

Overview

Step-By-Step

  1. Turn on the Classroom Climate Add-On. Go to your Add-Ons tab and choose Activate this Add-On.
  2. Choose the Feedback You Want to Gather. You can decide whether you'd like to gather mood data at the beginning of class, lesson feedback at the end of class, or both.

  3. Present a Lesson. Now every time you present a Pear Deck, depending on the options you chose in the last step, we will present students with a mood gathering question on the first slide, and a lesson feedback question when you end the Session. You don't have to do anything else to make that happen.

    If you choose to check for feedback, students will see this screen as soon you reach the end slide:
    You must advance to the end slide for students to see this question. They will be able to answer it up to one hour after you've ended the Session.

  5. Use the Data. There are a number of ways you can use the data once collected.
