Create a New Presentation

Overview

You can start a new presentation in Google Slides and add engaging interactive questions right there with the Pear Deck Add-On.

You can also still create a presentation with the old Pear Deck Editor. Please note that, instead of working in the old Pear Deck Editor, we're encouraging all users to install the Pear Deck for Google Slides Add-on and manage your lesson content in Google Slides. This gives you all the editing power of Slides with all of the engagement power of Pear Deck!

Start a New Presentation

  1. To log into Pear Deck, go to peardeck.com and click For Teachers. 
  2. If this is your first time using the Pear Deck for Google Slides Add-on, click Get Add-On. Learn more about this Add-On
    You will be asked to install the Pear Deck Add-on in Google Slides 


    After installing the Add-On, you can go back to your Pear Deck Home screen at any time and click Create a Presentation.

  3. You will land in the Google Slides Editor. 

    The landing page shows you exactly how to open the Pear Deck Sidebar, which is what you'll use to add interactive questions and formative assessment templates to your presentation.

Once you get the hang of it, you can also go directly to Google Slides and work there at any time!

Open a presentation in the old Pear Deck Editor

You can still use the Pear Deck Editor. 
Note: we encourage everyone to use the Pear Deck for Google Slides Add-on for the smoothest editing experience.

Open the old Pear Deck Editor from your Pear Deck Home.

If you have previously created Decks with the Pear Deck Editor, you will have the option to access it again. Just go to your Pear Deck Home and click the Looking for the old Pear Deck Editor link.
