Adobe + Pear Deck


Pear Deck has partnered with Adobe to unleash creativity and boost digital literacy. With these ready-to-teach lessons powered by Pear Deck, students can use technology to channel their creativity and tell their unique stories in new and exciting ways.



Adobe Express gives students and educators everything they need to create stunning graphics, flyers, photos, presentations, web pages, and videos — and express themselves in unique and beautiful ways both inside and outside the classroom.

Pear Deck was founded by educators on a mission to help teachers create powerful learning moments for every student, every day. With solutions rooted in active learning and formative assessment, we make it easy for teachers to connect with learners of every age and ability.
