Learning gains depend not directly on technology, but on what the teacher does with it: the learning design. In this talk some of the EVS-related learning designs I consider most promising are introduced. These frequently span more than one vote, and may span more than one session or day. Another important issue is that it is not enough to pose a question to vote on: what is the presenter then going to do with the votes? All of these issues serve to focus attention on not the planning but the actions of the presenter; and that in turn focusses attention on features of the software that make these dynamic actions easier or harder.
