Adding Audio to Pear Decks to Support Students

Adding Audio to Pear Decks to Support Students

Want to continue to make Pear Deck even more engaging and empowering? Using the “Add Audio” feature within Pear Deck is an amazing option!

Teacher can leverage audio added to Pear Deck to scaffold and support students by:

  • Adding helpful hints, suggestions or reminders to help students make connections and activate thinking
  • Providing visual descriptions of images or graphics on the slides to provide access to those who might need it (for example, a student with additional visual needs) and providing meaning making context for all students
  • Providing additional contextual information above and beyond the information on the slides in mode different than text

This month’s tip about adding audio is one elementary and special education teachers love. Take a look!
