  • This slide is for display to the audience to show them how they will vote on your polls in your presentation. You can remove this slide if you like or if the audience is already comfortable with texting and/or voting with Poll Everywhere.
    Sample Oral Instructions:
    Ladies and gentlemen, throughout today’s meeting we’re going to engage in some audience polling to find out what you’re thinking, what you’re up to and what you know. Now I’m going to ask for your opinion. We’re going to use your phones to do some audience voting just like on American Idol.
    So please take out your cell phones, but remember to leave them on silent. You can participate by sending a text message.
    This is a just standard rate text message, so it may be free for you, or up to twenty cents on some carriers if you do not have a text messaging plan. The service we are using is serious about privacy. I cannot see your phone numbers, and you’ll never receive follow-up text messages outside this presentation. There’s only one thing worse than email spam – and that’s text message spam because you have to pay to receive it!
  • Press F5 or use the tool bar to enter presentation mode in order to see the poll.

    If you like, you can use this slide as a template for your own voting slides. You might use a slide like this if you feel your audience would benefit from the picture showing a text message on a phone.

Surprisingly, one-fifth of the teens using IM say it is their primary means of communicating with friends.  http://www.pcworld.com/article/53444/teenagers_do_their_t alking_online.html
