  • <br /> <br /> Poll Title: How tech savvy are you? <br /> <br /> http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/bTPnBD7S0XCXUux
  • Now let’s say that you’d like results a little more quickly… instantly even. I know at U of T, students buy an iClicker. It’s much like the “Ask the Audience” on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? I’m sure most of us have seen that. Of course, these cost $35 a pop and only work in a networked room to the iClicker software and are registered by student number. It’s all too costly and complicated for most language learning environments. In lieu of this, you can do the same thing with a website and cell phones. The site is free to use and doesn’t charge anything to the participants. The only cost that could possibly be involved is the stardard charge your phone company charges for one text message (on my plan, I have unlimited texting ability, but for others, I’ve seen at most a 15cent charge by Rogers). 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! I’ve done this several times and I never received any follow-up texts or phone calls and no charges.
