AnswerGarden is the answer to great polls and brainstorming


     Our school's teacher-librarian has started using AnswerGarden to get students to brainstorm and write a list of their favorite books. She loves the site so I thought I would take a look at it and see what it has to offer. 


     AnswerGarden is a free feedback tool which can be used for online brainstorming or embedded into a website as a poll or guestbook. Users can quickly create a topic or question without signing up for the site and then share the AnswerGarden they created with others. 






     Teachers can use AnswerGarden in a variety of ways, including polling students or checking their knowledge on a specific topic. Once created, an AnswerGarden can be exported to Wordle or Tagxedo to generate Word Clouds which can be printed. 


I have embedded two AnswerGarden topics below. The first asks your favourite educational site and the second asks your favourite educational app. Please take a moment to write your answer.
