The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Can anyone recommend a program that will allow an entire faculty to collaborate on the discussion and voting on students for certain awards. Ideally, qualifying information about the student could be posted (grades, etc.), each teacher could post a comment, and of course the entire discussion will need to remain password protected.  Any ideas out there?

Hi Chris, 

 

I am working for a company which developed software which collects votes and comments and post them in a powerpoint presentation. The voting and comments are send via mobile internet, twitter and TXT. The youtube video will give you a better impression about the content of our product. If you would like to try it, please use our free-trial

Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope the product will help you 

Thanks, Tom.  I will check it out.

Hi Chris,

     I use a website http://www.vizu.com/index.html.  This website allows me to create web polls and either make them public or private (requireing a password).  It also allows you to have the polls operate on time schedule (open at one time and close at another time.  I use this site for both students and staff to vote on everything from student council elections to student awards.  It is nice because the website keeps a running tally of the votes and you can then print out the outcomes when the voting is finished.  I do not thing that it has a discussion forum to it but for voting it is second to none. 

Thanks, Chris.  That will be useful one way or the other.  I'll let you know. 

 

Hi Chris, 

Perhaps a low cost solution that would also introduce some tech to the staff would be surveymonkey.com and twitter. The former allows you to set up various surveys with text boxes for the info you mentioned. The latter may just require a #hashtag to track comments. 

Hope this helps. 

Best,
Julian
Thanks, Julian.  I hadn't thought about surveymonkey for this but it may do the trick. It's important that certain conversations remain confidential. Twitter concerns me in this regard.
I would use Google moderator it is a part of the Google apps found under your account.  It is the easiest way to add questions and have people vote and comment on them.
