I tried out Poll Everywhere and Wallwisher. Wallwisher is pretty neat. I may try using it next year as a wrap up activity. Students can post a comment about the day's lesson and we could review the posts the following day. It would help connect the daily lessons and students would have a better understanding of how one lesson builds on the previous lesson. Poll Everywhere is a nice and easy way to survey the class for feedback which can help me to determine the overall level of understanding. I probably would not use it as part of the lesson because the Activ Votes do the same thing and students can respond faster with a single button. Poll Everywhere requires texting a numerical value which corresponds to a response. The advantage of Poll Everywhere to the Activ Votes is that students can respond from a remote location like their home.
