If you use the phone inappropriately again during the month your parent or guardian will be required to retrieve your phone.  At the beginning of each month, you have a clean slate.  Adapt to fit your classroom setting

  • 38. Presenter Text Polling Notes • Explain what’s going on – “Now I’m going to ask for your opinion. You’ll use your phones to respond just like on American Idol. So please take out your cell phones, but remember to leave them on silent.” – “You’ll participate by sending a text message. If you don’t know how to do that, just ask your kids! Or have your neighbor help you figure it out.” • Address their concerns – “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. We 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!” • Use a demo or practice poll – For example, a Free Text Poll like “Let’s Practice: Text in your first name!” • Always test your polls in your presentation before your event using the computer that will be projecting your presentation, especially if that computer is not the one you’re currently using.
