Updates on some Favorite Resources...

A few great things have happened with some of my most often used mobile resources...
1) Polleverywhere has gone voter friendly! :0
They now allow anyone who signs up to get 1000 votes for free! Big improvement over the original 100 votes. This is great for secondary classroom teachers who have over 100 students. Also Polleverywhere now allows you to embed your poll into a blog or website with an easy link. For PC users, they have a downloadable slide to insert into a PowerPoint presentation which will show the poll receiving real time updates in PowerPoint.

2) Eyespot has mobile subscription options!
While you have always been able to post videos from cell phones directly into Eyespot, now Eyespot allows you to "subscribe" through your mobile phone to other people's Eyespot accounts. This can be useful in education for mobile journalism. For example students in a Journalism class can become "i reporters" and take and post videos of current news stories happening around the school/community directly into Eyespot. Then anyone who subscribes to the Eyespot account, will immediately receive the new video post in their mobile phone. Just another example of how Journalism is going mobile.
