Active learning techniques are used for engaging the students throughout their learning process.
This is done by enabling discussion & various interactive activities.
Unlike usual passive lectures, the active learning has enormous benefits, ampng others – in reducing achievement gaps, and in increasing the students results.
The Pear Deck Teachers Dashboard allows the teachers to anonymously share the student responses with the class.

This practice enables even the quietest students in the room to engage and participate, and it ensures that the students will actively engage while seeing their ideas being discussed.
This process helps students engage, be active and learn one from each other, and hepls the teacher better understand the students difficulties.
