Polls and surveys are tools that allow students to gather interesting information, preferences and choices of others related to a diversity of topics related to projects, possible actions, interpretations or trivia of books, videos, movies, etc. It calls upon the students to create clear and correct questions, possible answers and then to collate the information and present it in various formats. Face to face polls and surveys provide the opportunity for practice (not real Oral Interactions as it is more repetitive reading than "interaction") however internet based polls provide the opportunity to gather the responses of a series of classes, a school, other schools, parents and the list goes on.
