The 5 Interactive Question Types in Google Slides
There are 5 Interactive Slides or Question types.  They allow you to ask every student for their answers, opinions, ideas and creativity.  When you ask students a question through Pear Deck, every student answers on his or her own screen.  You can choose to display answers anonymously on the projector screen and you can see each individual answer on your Teacher Dashboard. With every question type you can put content on the main slide (which will show on the projector screen) and then configure the way students will respond. Content you can put on the main slide area:
