ClassPager for SMS and Polling Students!
Wow! I am really enjoying using a new resource called ClassPager. It is 100% free! It allows teachers to create class alerts with no limit on the number of students (or parents). Additionally, it is private. It also allows you to set up sms polls (they can be free text polls). There are a lot of teacher controls over student accounts and yet it does allow for anonymity. In addition it DOES NOT use shortcodes (it uses real phone numbers) so it will work with just about any cell phone (YAY for Metro PCS!). This also allows people who don't have cell phones but do have iPod iTouches to participate with Free Texting Apps (because they give you a free phone number or you could use Google Voice).
