How to create a poll in PowerPoint

How to create a poll in PowerPoint | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
A really cool way to engage an audience is using live polls in your PowerPoint presentations.

What’s great about this is if you ask the audience a question, instead of having them shout out their answers or writing their responses on a flip chart, you can have them respond on their mobile devices so you can see the results appear in real time on the slide. This can work with all types of questions – from multiple choice, to free response, to (my favorite) word clouds.

Watch the video below or scroll down the page to see how to get started with live polling in PowerPoint today.
