With Poll Everywhere you can project instant student feedback onto the screen and watch the real time data change on the bar graph as

students send in responses via text message or from a computer, cell phone, or mobile device. Create a free account with Poll Everywhere

and then get started making your first poll question for up to 30 participants with the free version.

If your students are using iPods or iPads with Poll Everywhere,

they can save the website as an icon (looks like an app icon) on the device. Here's how you do that:

  • Open the browser on the iPod Touch or iPad
  • Navigate to the exact page of the website you want to make an icon for
  • Click on the icon on the top left side of the screen that looks like a rectangle with a right curved arrow
  • Choose "Add to Home Screen"
  • Name the website what you want and then touch "add"
  • It will then set the website as an icon on your iPod Touch/iPad
