what is joinpd?

JoinPD isn’t actually a standalone app or website. It’s a web address used to access a specific feature within the Pear Deck platform: “Join Pear Deck.” Think of it like a doorway leading to interactive presentations created by teachers using Pear Deck.

So, what’s the connection?

Pear Deck is a platform that transforms presentations into interactive experiences for classrooms and beyond. Teachers create engaging presentations with quizzes, polls, open-ended discussions, and more, while students use the JoinPD link or code to actively participate.

Pear Deck presentation with polls and questions

Here’s how it works:

  1. Teachers Create: Using Pear Deck, teachers design interactive presentations filled with engaging elements.
  2. Students Join: Students access the presentation through joinpd.com or the “JoinPD” option within the Pear Deck app. No account is needed for basic participation.
  3. Interactive Learning: Students actively participate in polls, quizzes, discussions, and other activities, receiving real-time feedback and contributing to the learning experience.
  4. Teachers Gain Insights: Teachers see students’ answers and progress in real-time, allowing them to adapt their teaching and address any confusion.

Why choose JoinPD (through Pear Deck)?

  • Boost engagement: Students actively participate, not passively receive information.
  • Deeper understanding: Real-time feedback and formative assessments help identify learning gaps.
  • Differentiation & collaboration: Cater to individual needs and promote teamwork for inclusive learning.
  • Data-driven instruction: Make informed teaching decisions based on student responses and progress data.
  • User-friendly: Easy to learn and use for both teachers and students.

Remember: JoinPD.com itself doesn’t have functionalities. It’s the entry point for students to join sessions created with Pear Deck.

Is there an app for JoinPD?

Not truly. While there’s a Pear Deck app, it doesn’t have a separate “JoinPD” section. Students can still access presentations through the JoinPD link or code within the Pear Deck app.

JoinPD (through Pear Deck) can be a valuable tool for both teachers and students, fostering a more engaging and interactive learning environment.
