More with Kahoot!

Website Wednesday

Kahoot is a website that allows teachers to create multiple choice questions with images, text and video. Students then join the game using a code provided by the teacher. The faster the student answers the more points they get. Of course, correct answers also get points. Best of all, the site works on any device - laptop, macbook, iPad, Chromebook, smart phone . . . anything with internet access. 

Even better, Kahoot has added a NEW game and data results features. 

Data Results can be saved to your Google Drive with one click of a button. Quiz results will open in a Google Sheet allowing you to manipulate the data. This is great for helping set-up RTI or Enrichment Groups. Classes can also celebrate the top 3 placed students with the new game option, Podium.  

With the new Ghost Mode feature, classes can play the game again. As they play again,Kahoot keeps, shows, and compares student scores and answers from the live game (first game played) and the Ghost Mode game. It's a great way to motivate students to beat their previous score while reinforce learning through repetition. Since students can create their own free account, assign Kahoot as homework and with Ghost Mode students can play again and again. While at the same time, you can see all the data in a google sheet with a click of a button. 

The new Kahoot Jumble, a sequencing game, "promotes accuracy over speed". Put historical events in chronological order, sort the parts of a word problem, or rearrange sentences. The possibilities are endless. 

Here's a handout to get things started for you. I promise your students will love it!
