Poll Everywhere

Technology

With all the advances in technology and media, it is amazing that many software programs are not obsolete. PowerPoint, in particular, is one such program. Created over 20 years ago, PowerPoint is an integral part of presentations in the classroom, boardroom and everywhere in between. Despite its longevity and usefulness, PowerPoints can be incredibly boring. Thankfully, there are now add-ins that anyone can use to spice up their presentation. One such add-in is Poll Everywhere. Poll Everywhere allows users to create customized polls that enable presenters to engage and interact with their audiences in real time. The program works through embeddable widgets, text messages, mobile web and even Twitter. Poll Everywhere is free for an audience of up to 30 people, however there are also plans customizable for groups of 50 – 20,000 people.
