Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom | English Language Teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

For a long time now I have been looking for a tool that enables instant polling in the classroom or in the lecture room.

It looks like I have finally found what I've been looking for and best of all it's free. The tool that I have found is Mentimeter and it does all of the above.
