I decided to check out Today's Meet and create an account for my class. I like it because it would give shy students a chance to communicate with myself and other students. I also like that it is free and easy to use. The web address is http://todaysmeet.com/huffsclass.
Ok I was finally able to embed something on Thing #5 and now I am going for my second try.
I visited PollEverywhere and really enjoyed this site. I think students would love to use their cell phones and computers to answer poll questions in class. It would be a wonderful group activity for students to create their own polls.
