Sharing is caring!
If you ask me, education is all about decisions. Sometimes my pupils just have to listen to what I tell them, but more often than not I let them have a say in what they want to do. To reach a consesus, however, is one of the biggest challenges with a group of thirty minds. To come to a conclusion, I like to use Stickymoose.
Stickymoose is an online tool that allows you to create some kind of poll. It's not live, although you can use it as such; the new results come in immediately. The poll can entail multiple questions and answers and you can set a deadline. The best part about the deadline set via the tool is that there is no discussion about who was or wasn't on time. The outcome is the outcome and that's it.
The tool will show which answer has got the most votes. The poll can be shared via social media or just a regular link. Sending it to your students is done very easily.
The tool doesn't require an account or even a sign-up. Single use works perfectly fine.
- Internet connection
- No sign-up needed
- Easy to use
- Helps you make decisions without much hassle
- Not suitable for quick decisions; that's more easily done without a tool.
Have you ever used Stickymoose? Please leave a comment!
