In a world of lectures and presentations, the content delivery method has always been the same. A slide goes up, notes get written, a slide changes, and the world keeps spinning. 
With better access to technology, students are looking for better ways to become engaged and connect with the materials. Enter PearDeck and GimKit! PearDeck is an incredible tool for live content delivery. It simultaneously broadcasts your screen onto their devices, in real time, while allowing them to interact with it. It allows for immediate feedback, impromptu questioning and deeper connections with materials. Tired of using Kahoot because it is just the same thing over and over again?

Strategize, compete, collaborate and learn in a race against the clock that doesn’t feel like a race at all!
