Today a team from Kahoot visited our class. In this post I am going to include my own experiences making a Kahoot in class, how it can be used to learn and if I would recommend it to other teachers or/and students. And I am going to tell you about the visit.
To start of, what is Kahoot and how does it work? 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!
Create– Create a fun learning game in minutes, kahoots, made from a series of multiple choice questions. Add videos, images and diagrams to your questions to amplify engagement!
Play– Kahoots are best played in a group setting, like a classroom. Players answer on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson – creating a ‘campfire moment’ – encouraging players to look up.
Share– Social learning promotes discussion and pedagogical impact… whether players are in the same room or on the other side of the globe! After a game, encourage players to create and share their own kahoots to deepen understanding, mastery and purpose.
In my class we use Kahoot a lot. For instans today, we made kahoots about Ernest Hemingway. I learned a lot, and it makes the classes more variated and fun! You can make kahoots about whatever you’d like. I recommend all students and teachers to try out this way of learning. Here is a link to the kahoot my group and I made today, you can click the link and log in: https://create.kahoot.it/?_ga=1.9402870.251019469.1444812432&deviceId=27e5d04f-a5bb-4d6f-8b7c-3b9b65918072#login?next=
Today a team from Kahoot visited our class, and they made a film to show people what Kahoot is, and how we use it in class. It was a lot of fun actually, I really enjoyed it.
