Live Polling in Google Slides!

I know that so many people love using Google Drive for the convenience, collaboration, and ease of sharing. But, when it comes to Slides, there are several things that teachers have been looking for. Polling and quizzing within your presentation is a top contender.

Well, I just found out today that Poll Everywhere is aiming to solve that request (assuming you are a Google Chrome user)!

Poll Everywhere just released a Polling in Google Slides extension for Chrome. When you install it, a Poll Everywhere button will appear in your Slides toolbar giving you the options to insert a poll that exists in your Poll Everywhere account already or the ability to create a new one.

Once you have inserted your poll, you won't actually be able to see it until you are presenting the Slides and have the poll turned on in your Poll Everywhere account. Otherwise you wind up with a screen that looks like this:

It looks like a great solution for those of you that want to retain any transitions, links, collaboration, editing capabilities, or videos that you would normally lose by taking the presentation in PDF form and importing it into Nearpod, Pear Deck, or GoFormative.

Let me know if you try it!
