Poll Everywhere
No More Raised Hands:
Poll Everywhere
to Communicate in the Classroom

Poll Everywhere is a technology tool that allows anyone to create an electronic poll.
Teachers can use it to access
student knowledge.
It's a new way for students to share their opinions.
- Need a cell phone or computer with internet connection to vote

- Can cost students because standard text messaging rates apply

- Free text poll can be risky with a free plan.
With a paid plan, you get to approve answers before they are displayed

- Have to purchase a plan for use with more than 40 responses

Texting is a primary communication tool for children.
How do you think communicating in the classroom has
in the last 5 years?
How do you think teachers can modify their instruction to incorporate their students’
primary communication tool (text messaging)

While students are learning, they can text in:
key vocabulary words
You can even email
your students to
respond to a poll while they are doing homework.
What kind of polls can you create?
Multiple Choice:

List the
possible answers
[a, b, c]
Free Text Polls:

Students write their
own personal responses
You control when the poll begins
and you can
it when you’re done
to prevent additional responses.
If students don't have a cell phone
or have a limited/no text message plan:
Have them use a computer
Pair them up for group voting

Seeing other responses might influence a student's vote...
try hiding responses until everyone has voted.

"Our students have changed radically.
Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach."
- Marc Prensky
