Complaints:“This is so frustrating and upsetting. I am a teacher who JUST started using Poll Everywhere two weeks ago in my classroom after learning about it at a technology integration day. My students loved it the ONE time we used it, when Clear Results still worked. My district will NOT PURCHASE a membership; they don’t believe in supporting this sort of technology; we are on our own to find and use this stuff. Your rate for one teacher is MUCH TOO HIGH for me to pay out of my own pocket! How frustrating that I cannot compile results any longer without forking over such a steep fee. And to think that I was considering this to be a very advantageous tool to use in my classroom! I can use it but not compile results for separate classes. How unfair of you, and how greedy” (TRACYTC)
