Kahoot! is an online program that allows you to create interactive quizzes, discussions and polls.
I personally have used the quiz function and my students love it. What makes them love it? The competition! Kahoot! awards students points when they answer a question correctly. The quicker you answer, the more points you earn. It also lets them know how far behind/ahead they are. Students are motivated to pick a correct answer quickly in order to beat their peers.
You'll like the fact that students get immediate feedback. You also get to see the number of students that got a question right, so you can talk about missed question right away.
At the end of a quiz you can download the results for a more in depth look at how your students performed.
How can you use it?
- Review a previously taught topic
- Gauge students' prior knowledge
- Gather opinions to start a class discussion
