Acquainted is a neat polling service that I wrote about earlier this week. I described it as a conversational polling service because you can program responses to appear based on the response choices someone make on your poll. That description might have confused some folks as I have received a bunch of questions about how the Acquainted system works. In the following video I demonstrate how to create a poll on Acquainted and show what the poll looks like to a student.
Applications for Education
As I mentioned earlier this week, in addition to polling Acquainted could be used as a mini tutoring service when added to your classroom website. You could build a series of questions for your students to respond to and get feedback that is programmed by you. You could build responses that provide explanations of why an answer is correct or incorrect. Your responses might even include a link to further explanations.
