Poll Everywhere... on PDYM blog...

I'm with Nick Carnes and a group of other guys who are trying to make some more blog posts over at the Purpose Driven Youth Ministry blog... found HERE.

The PDYM blog is there as a resource for other youth workers to find help, support and to ask questions. We want to encourage the youth ministry community. And so, we're doing that in a variety of ways.

But one of those ways that we're trying to do that is by sharing thoughts, ideas, what's working, what's not working, resources and anything else that we feel might be helpful to others.

I just posted a blog over there about "Poll Everywhere." We used this this weekend and our students enjoyed it. Here's a snipet of my article:
"If your students are anything like mine, about 75% of your high school students and probably 50-60% of your middle school students are carrying cell phones. Most of them have "unlimited" or nearly unlimited text messaging.
This weekend we tried out an online service from I had heard about it before... in fact, the worship minister at my church had shared it with me. But it was one of "those" ideas that I shelved. This weekend we pulled it off and it worked really, really well."

If you want to read the rest of the article, you can find it HERE.
