Great news showed up in my inbox today! Pear Deck has announced its latest update: embedding websites in Pear Deck slides. Until now, you could paste active links in slides, but now students can interact with the websites, and when you’re ready to move on, you can move them onto the next slide.
This has great potential for allowing students more interaction with real world material. I’ve been accustomed to using Awesome Screenshot to paste images and charts into slides. Now, I can embed the webpage and allow the students to find the info on the page themselves. Less work for me, more realistic for them–I can’t wait to put it to use (next year, though, since semester finals start Friday!)
