Wacom + Pear Deck

Pear Deck allows teachers to take existing content in slide decks and add interactivity — such as open response or multiple choice questions, draggable icons, or drawing options. In addition to this interactive content, a teacher can also share a link to a website for a video, research, or Google Form. It even empowers teachers to monitor student work in real time.

Collaboard is a digital whiteboard software — meaning you get all the familiar benefits of handwriting on a standard whiteboard with the added advantage of working digitally. With Collaboard you can save, share, and collate your whiteboard presentations. It gives you unlimited whiteboard space, so nothing’s ever lost. And you don’t have to write “DON’T ERASE” in the corner.
