Kahoot - A Really Fun Student Response Application
This week I tried out a new site called Kahoot and it was a HUGE success with my students and with the teachers in Hartland, WI where I presented this past weekend.
Kahoot allows you to create a quiz (survey or discussion). The teacher needs to sign up for a free account to create a quiz. The students do not need an account to take the quiz.
The teacher projects the quiz in the front of the room and the students answer the multiple choice questions on any device.
Students only need to get the pin to enter into the quiz.
Questions appear very visual and the choices are colored boxes with shapes. After each question, the quiz also projects the students with the top 5 scores.
While taking the quiz, music plays in the background and the questions are timed, which the teacher sets the time when setting up the quiz.
When the quiz is finished, teachers can download the results.
One of my favorite features is the ability to preview a quiz before launching it.
