@kchichester: Thanks for the info.
Peggy_G says to (00:53:07):

Brent Coley's site
Jeff Stanzler says to (00:55:37):
kchichester says to (00:55:47):
@ Liz Kolb I was a guest on his show. When he found out I was from metro Detroit, the first thing he wanted to know is if I knew you.
Paul R Wood says to (00:56:31):
Parents are more than happy to have someone show the students what is going on and how to get more out of the tool
Peggy_G says to (00:56:56):

Thanks Joe. Thanks Liz & Jeff.
Peggy_G says to (00:59:25):

Jeff Stanzler says to (00:59:40):
Thanks, Joe!!
Liz Kolb says (01:00:06):
Thank you everyone for joining us! Isn't Joe fantastic!!!
Peggy_G says to (01:00:11):
thanks :-)
Paul R Wood says to (01:00:14):
I actually use the smallest paid version of polleverywhere.
Liz Kolb says (01:00:30):
@paul for more responses?
Peggy_G says to (01:00:33):
limit is 30 people, right?
Paul R Wood says to (01:00:52):
I even allow students to put together polls as they teach review sessions on our subjects
Paul R Wood says to (01:01:04):
I think it is 50 responses
Jeff Stanzler says to (01:01:09):
What a cool idea, Paul.
Peggy_G says to (01:01:21):
fantastic suggestions Paul!
Peggy_G says to (01:01:35):
they learn so much more (and remember it) when they are creating the reviews
Liz Kolb says (01:01:38):
@paul I love the idea of students creating the polls and coming up with new ways to use cells in learning! Let them focus on the educative value of the phone
Paul R Wood says to (01:01:40):
Had a student pur together 10 questions on the book Friday Night Lights and asked short answer questions
Liz Kolb says (01:02:02):
I bet she loved that assignment!
Liz Kolb says (01:02:10):
And probably remembers a lot from the book
Paul R Wood says to (01:02:19):
Plus my accountant makes it worthwhile with those unreimbursed expenses for school
Jeff Stanzler says to (01:02:22):
@Paul: Giving the kids owndership...terrific
Peggy_G says to (01:02:27):
Quizlet is also great for students to create questions online but I don't think you can do it with cell phones-just internet based
Jeff Stanzler says to (01:02:50):
@peggy: I'll have to check that one out.
Liz Kolb says (01:03:00):
@peggy there is a mobile quiz (that is SMS) I cannot remember the name though
Paul R Wood says to (01:03:35):
Liz are you in Detroit?
Peggy_G says to (01:03:58):
Quizlet was created by a 15-year old and it has millions of users!! :-) amazing tool!
Liz Kolb says (01:04:08):
here it is
Peggy_G says to (01:04:17):
thanks Liz
Paul R Wood says to (01:04:29):
Will need to look those over
Liz Kolb says (01:04:36):
Right outside of Detroit in Ann is Jeff
Paul R Wood says to (01:04:53):
Your Tigers are killing my Rangers in baseball.
Jeff Stanzler says to (01:04:58):
Thanks, everyone...sorry to drop out on you, Liz!
Liz Kolb says (01:05:09):
