Yesterday at the KATE conference in Wichita, Kansas, we used PollEverywhere for a multiple choice poll as well as an open-text poll during the opening presentation. Here are our polls and results. Our multiple choice poll asked, “What has shaped your perception of Oklahoma most?”
After reviewing this poll’s results, a participant asked how to create one from scratch. Someone suggested the question, “What makes a hero?” Rather than creating that as a multiple-choice poll, I created it as an open-text poll. This took a bit longer for responses to come in, but it was great to demonstrate both poll types at the conference.
I think seeing PollEverywhere in action during a conference presentation was a big “a-ha” moment for some of the participants. One of the attendees shared that she used PollEverywhere with students and found it helped build a sense of community in class– students were actually able to use their cell phones legitimately in class for a learning purpose, and they found that both a novel and engaging experience.
