Kahoot!



Thanks to Tim Smith for posting- Twitter: @TechnologyTym

"Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that makes it fun to learn - any subject, in any language, on any device, for all ages!" - GetKahoot.com

Kahoot! is taking classrooms by storm all over the world.  It is a great choice for educators as it supports different learning styles.  Teachers can transform a dull assessment to an engaging and at times competitive experience that leaves students asking for more!  Kahoot! has two websites:  GetKahoot.com is the teacher portal to create a Kahoot! and Kahoot.it can be pulled up via any browser on any device for students to play a game of Kahoot!

Teachers can create or pull from a vast library of educator created Kahoots!, duplicate, and modify to make it their own.  Students can play individually with a device or teams can be grouped with one device.  Students can finish the game and choose to play in GhostMode to play against their previous score, can be played at a later time, or at home.

Kahoot! is a game changer in education.  Imagine students enjoying the process of preparing for standardized tests through a gaming platform.  Teams can work together to read questions and review answers, and learn great test taking strategies as teachers review polled answers.  Most of all - Kahoot! is FREE, and educators love great FREE resources.  Great for young and old alike, everyone loves Kahoot!

  2. I happened to be lucky that my friend couldn't find a date for an event so he generously took me with him, which happened to be one of the best experience for me in recent times. I was lucky enough to see these event venues Chicago. If you get a chance to check this out please do so.
