You Might Be a Geeky Teacher if you can Create a Survey or Poll!

There are some great web 2.0 tools you can use to create and conduct  polls and surveys instantly and for free! These tools are free and very simple to use. Most of them have embed codes to use when  sharing them  on your classroom blog or website.

  • Feedback from students and learners
  • Pre-Assessment 
  • Use in a Flipped Classroom senario for homework
  • Learning about students interests and progress
  • Quizzes and Assessments
  • Exit Slips
  • Reflection - we use a Google form to quickly evaluation how our lesson went and ways to improve
  • You name it!  
*My favorite is Google Forms!  We use these constantly for staff and students!  Anytime you need quick information, these are perfect!  The entered information is put in a spreadsheet and you can access and manipulate the results including graphs and real time information!  

*I have used Wiffiti and really like the pop up look of it in the past.  I discovered this week that they are re-branding and changing their name to Locamoda.  It still has the same great pop up features and you can use your cell phone to text in your answer!  Love to use this as a back channel for a conference or presentation!


*Kwiqpoll is a simple poll making tool. It does not require any registration. Just visit the homepage and start creating  you poll right away. You have the choice to provide multiple choice answers. You will also be provided with a generated URL to use when sharing your polls.

This is a great polling tool. We love to use it on Texting Tuesdays when we allow the kids to bring their cell phones and answer questions and join in a discussion in real time during class.   It has different pricing plans and also has a free plan but very limited and allows for just 40 responses per poll.
