Poll Everywhere is a great way to gather responses from students.Charles F., Philadelphia Technology in Education Examiner
Our Free plan is useful for sampling opinions, small groups, or evaluating the product's efficacy. You don't have to spend anything to realize a significant value when compared to the alternatives.
Low-cost premium plans can save 90% over clickers. Plans exist for individual teachers as well as per-student priced plans for schools and entire districts. Poll Everywhere can replace clunky clickers and bring a whole new experience and range of uses.
For comparison, clicker systems (also known as Student Response Systems [ SRS ] or Classroom Response Systems [ CRS ]) average $1500 to $2000 for a set of 30 clickers, useful for one classroom at most.
Teachers prefer Poll Everywhere because it saves them time & money, increases student achievement, and there is no need to pass out & collect clickers. Get new features every week, it works on any web or mobile device, and no waiting for updates to the software. For students who don't bring their own device [BYOD (?) ], utilize in-class computers or a laptop/tablet cart.
Students prefer Poll Everywhere because their responses can be reviewed later. Students also have a much greater likelihood to remember to bring their phone/laptop with them and it gives them a reason to avoid using their device for another purpose or distraction.
With free text polls, it is now possible to create word clouds, create a platform for large group brainstorming sessions and expose students' opinions more honestly. The ability to rapidly critique and discuss open-ended topics leads to richer thinking.
Most web services don't offer support you have to beg for it. You can call us if you like and can expect an email response within 1 hour during a normal business day.
Although our software is self-service, proven and simple, we understand that people might need help. Most people find answers in the Frequently Asked Questions but we also offer telephone and email support.
A web-based product enables some wonderful benefits:
In a single account, such as a school or district with many faculty using the tool, it is convenient for teachers teaching the same courses to swap and share their questions and content with each other by searching and browsing one another's questions and surveys.
At scale, you have the power to search and discover the very best crafted questions and content created by other experts and teachers in your field or subject area. Over time, the best questions will also be ranked, making them even more valuable.
Utilize Poll Everywhere's capabilities outside the classroom for professional development, faculty meetings, student-run presentations, experiential learning, talent shows, battle of the bands, student government, student activites/groups, and PTA meetings.
