Polls and Surveys

Creating polls and surveys can be used in many ways in the classroom. From asking a question to see who understands, asking opinions, or generating data for a math assignment, there are many possibilities. Making the polling and surveying more accessible is easy when students can do their input by sending a text on their mobile device using Poll Everywhere.

To incorporate this into social media an easy way would be to send out the QR codes made to do the polls and have others respond to the same poll all over the place. Connecting with other classrooms and having other classrooms answering the same questions would increase the demographic of who is answering the question, as well as make students aware of answers people have from all over the place. The code below asks name and where you are from, this would be good to show where a classroom would be connecting if they were following a similar QR led lesson. Students could also create their own polls and send it out to others to answer.

To demonstrate the use of this service in our presentation we have created a QR code with instructions on the input we want in a poll.

The question is: What is your name, and where are you from?

Another thing that a QR code can generate is an SMS text. If you are doing a poll, say a yes or no poll, you could have the person scan the answer they want and it automatically sends in their answer.
