      Provides responses globally which can contribute to the global perspective

      This reminds me of some of the clicker elements that we have integrated into our schools in the recent years, but sometimes there are issues with this. By having this, we can integrate formative assessment quickly and receive immediate feedback. 
    • Kristin Lavorato
       
      Creating a poll quickly is definitely a point of appeal for teachers, and students can utilize this as well for check-ins after presentations. Not a bad idea for attention grabbers either!

      I have used this with my co-taught US History course and the students love being able to use their phones to give feedback or share opinions.
    • Samantha Fecich
       
      It gives students an educational purpose to use their phones.

      We used this tool in a meeting of educators and it worked great. One of my concerns about using this in school is that I wouldn't want to upset any students that did not have a phone or the ability to text.
  • Audience answers in real time using mobile phones, Twitter, or web browsers

      This might be useful in "in-place" training on the warehouse floor to see if learners are benefiting from/liking/learning from instruction as it happens.

    I have a sci teacher that allowed her students to use this with their cell phones/ipods during sex ed class. It was used as a means to anonymously ask questions that would usually be very embarrassing in a classroom setting. It worked great and students were able to use their personal devices as learning tools!
  •  
    Another Web 2.0 tool which allows you to create polls. There is a free version, but also some priced versions too. Looks like a very flexible format!
  •  
    A easier way to collect quantitative information anywhere and anytime.
  •  
    This would work great with i-clickers!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere is a great way to allow students to use their favorite piece of technology, their phones! I love using this site to create anticipation guides. Students' initial responses are anonymous, but the results can lead to great discussion.
  •  
    I just took a look - I am wondering if I will be able to post math problems ... would love to be able to use it to ask questions to check for understanding periodically through the class.
  •  
    Glad to see I don't have to buy a complicated clicker system in order to get real-time feedback from my class.
  •  
    This is awesome tool that I plan on experimenting with for some of my classroom workshops. I was exposed to this type polling at a recent training conference that I attended. This will defintly reduce the paperwork.
  •  
    This looks like a great tool for classroom polling. I often place a Keystone question into my power point and the class talks through the correct/incorrect answers & offers strategies on how to approach the questions in the future. This would be a fun way to get everyone involved.
  •  
    Can do real time surveys and quizzes in the classroom. Know if students are understanding the material almost instantly. Like the potential for quick feedback and saving paper.Surveys and quizzes could be multiple choice or open-ended. Even usable in lower grades, probably third grade and up.
  •  
    I've taught high school Spanish, grades 6-12 ESL, and Elementary Ed and I can see that this tool would be usable in all of these situations. Just tweak for the grade level and content. V ery usable with adults as well.
  •  
    Gather anonymous, live responses to a poll/survey via text/cell phone. We recently used this during our retirement luncheon as a way to advertise advice and appreciation to the retirees.  Comments were shared anonymously on the Smartboard for all to see and share!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere allows students to answer questions and share opinions using there Smartphones
  •  
    I've used this tool successfully in the large conference environment. Could be useful for a live online class if you didn't want to compromise screen real estate.
  •  
    We just had this introduced to are departments not to long ago, it's great for simple polls of what the students are thinking.
  •  
    This would be a great tool to use in the classroom if you were taking a survey, asking questions, checking for understanding, etc.  This will give immediate feedback to the teacher or presenter.  
  •  
    Good idea for PPYP? Use for class? Get most current phone numbers!
  •  
    class polls/game shows activities.  Classroom assessments
  •  
    This could be a useful tool for me when giving training "in place" on the warehouse floor to poll or survey students. 
  •  
    Poll Everywhere is the easiest way to gather live responses in any venue... conferences, concerts, classrooms, and company off-sites - anywhere with internet. Seems like a great way to get audience responses to student presentations in class, and it might be great in higher ed.
