VoxVote mobile voting tool from Liz Eagle

OSFC has just been added to the approved education institution list for VoxVote.

VoxVote is a free and easy mobile voting tool, which allows you to set a range of questions which your students can vote on from their phones (no app needed).

As we’re now an approved institution, you can make unlimited quizzes with unlimited participants and also add in your own slides, so you don’t need to switch between VoxVote and PowerPoint.

We used it for the first time yesterday at the Local Democracy Week event and it worked really well!

You can register and find out more here: http://www.voxvote.com/offers/2014-education-teachers-for-free
