Moreganize It!

If there is one thing I really love about the internet, it's free stuff.  I heard about the Moreganize site from a colleague and I can't wait to check it out.

With the advent of GoogleDocs and wikis, schools are heading more and more towards collaborative creation and online communication.  Moreganize allows you to set up a free account, then it offers several tools for communicating in a group.

Using Moreganize, you can conduct surveys, anonymous opinion polls, or create a shareable to do list or schedule that is open to others.  In my mind, the applications for this service are countless, but may be best suited for the students themselves. 

Given that ours is a private school, the population of students draws from all over the Philadelphia area.  It can be difficult for students to get together for group projects outside of school.  With Moreganize, groups could work together on a to do list or survey each other for ideas. 

Recently, all teachers at our school had to complete reflective essays based on feedback from student surveys.  We are even surveying students to create our groups for an upcoming amusement park field trip.  Maybe next year, we can generate this type of data electronically with a service like Moreganize!
