http://gosoapbox.com/ is a website where a teacher can set up a 'poll' for students to go into and say "I'm still confused" or "I get it" to a particular question in the classroom. The results are shown instantly in a poll and the poll is set up by the teacher and a web address is given to the students to click on to enter the poll. Students do not need to enter their own details and just click on the link an dthen click on the answer that applies to them for the question asked. The teacher has a secret pin that lets them manage and update the poll when needed. I still need to play around with this more, but it looks pretty good and safe for our students to use in the classroom
