What a fun tool.Teachers can create a quiz, survey or discussion OR use any of the thousands that are there by other users. I showed this at a faculty meeting and many loved it. We'll see how many come to a "training" after school

Kahoot Blog for ideas
Here is a much better blog than mine!
My 2cents is....
- Make it fun. Kids have enough serious things to do with computers. A review before a quiz, a game at the start of class, a pre-test to see what they already know about something.
- After you "duplicate" someone else's Kahoot, you MUST preview or edit it before you can show it. It is not an option. This is a great idea to force teachers to actually go through some one else's work and edit it as needed.
- As the students pick a nickname be aware of what they chose or have some requirements/guidelines.
- Be careful of "requiring" or giving "grades" on this. Not everyone will always have a device to use and technological issues always occur. There is downloadable spreadsheet of scores you can access if you want another thing to keep track of.
- Set it on autoplay (under Advanced options) to move the game along and you can then wander about the room checking up on them. But maybe not a good idea if you are requiring or grading this!
- Even if a few kids who don't have a device or do not want to participate, they still get to see the information/content you are presenting.
Enjoy and comment...
