Alternatives to Physical Clickers in the Classroom-List

I am currently generating a list of alternatives to physical clickers in the classroom. I am testing a few out. One I liked that was free is Pinnion. I also want to explore using Google Docs Forms as a polling/survey tool in the classroom (it has a lot of potential) .  Here’s my list (feel free to try them out as well, each has their own style and features):

  1. Great list. I have used a few of these–polldaddy, polleverywhere, eclicker, and socrative—but you have listed a bunch I wasn’t aware of. Thanks for the info.

  3. Reblogged this on My PIDP Corner and commented:
    Great to use in the classroom

  4. You should probably add ExitTicket to this list. Very complete, both free and paid versions available based on your needs. http://exitticket.org

  5. Classroom clickers are certainly an ideal option for higher educational systems. They allow teacher teacher to capture each and every student present in the classroom as mostly students do not participate in class discussions. They are also an ideal option for students who feel hesitated in speaking among all. They can also present their opinion.
