Survey Your Students

Summary: Cell phones in classroom.

If you want to survey your students to see if they are learning, try using their cell phones. The site is: HT: Rich Wiess.

The SMG is a powerful tool that I believe teachers are under-utilizing. I admit that I don't know all of the features on my Blackberry. I called my cell phone provider to learn how to add a new group so I could send one text message to several students. Later this week, I want to begin sending questions and content for AP Macroeconomics.

I would welcome any suggestions.
