"My favorite thing about Pear Deck is that we can submit our answers and view them in class without anyone knowing who had that answer. I also get to learn from my peers with their responses."
"My favorite thing about pear deck is the fact that it is more organized and grabs students attention better rather than calling out names. It also is a faster and more productive way of being able to see is a single or couple students do not understand the material since we get to see everyone's responses and at other times these students may have been too shy to ask a question but thanks to pear deck they can do so discretely"
"Since, I'm a shy person and when I get called on I don't know what to say because I get so nervous and on pear deck I get to actually write what my opinion is on whatever we're talking about in class."
"It is fun and lets us express our opinions about what we are doing, it gives the class a good laugh, and it is a good way for teachers to know if students know the material."
