Check out this cute video of kids playing Kahoot! in the classroom. Who knew anybody could be so enthusiastic about a quiz?
Kahoot! lets teachers easily create games for their classrooms. It’s simple to incorporate pictures and even video clips. What they end up with is a classroom experience that looks a lot like a TV game show.
The way it works is that teachers create quizzes on the free GetKahoot website and then give kids a code to access the quizzes on their tablets or laptops. (The kids need their own technology to join in, which is too bad because it looks like loads of fun for all kids.) Teachers can control the experience so that kids can compete against themselves or against each other, with results showing up on the classroom’s big screen.
It’s pretty cool. It’s also cool that teachers can share their quizzes with other teachers. Everybody wins when everybody learns!
