Posted in Classroom, Consuming, Creating, General, Humanities/ Topics, and Literacy

So we all know Socrative,Β which is an excellent tool for the classroom. For those of you who have not seen the new quiz tool Kahoot. I suggest that you have a look. This is a tool which could be used from P-12 and even at a tertiary level.

There is also a database of Kahoot’s which have been created on a variety of topics and method areas. Β Kahoot can be used across platforms and it only needs a internet connection.

There are several ways that this tool could be used in the classroom

1. As a formative assessment tool to check understanding of what has been learnt.

2. As a diagnostic assessment tool to check for concept knowledge or misconceptions about concepts before the learning has occurred.

3. As a tool to poll the class, these results could then be graphed.

4. Get the students to create their own quiz based on the topic, concept, book etc. This would give you a very good understanding of student understanding and also allows for higher levels of thinking.

    Hello I’m ceygan and i have always wondered what a kahoot was and then this year my teacher mrs. Wyatt showed me but I never really did like it because it was for reading and I didn’t like to do anything in reading but read my ar book because I feel when I read my ar book I go to another place and right now I’m reading “Jeremy fink and the meaning of life” that book is a mystery/love story /comedy/horror and its really good because in that book they express it they’re selves and they leave u wondering about what is gonna happen nextπŸ’•πŸŽ€πŸ‘‘πŸ’πŸ’―πŸ’‹πŸŒΊπŸ‘πŸ‘­πŸ™‰πŸ™ˆπŸ’žπŸ‘ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ˜˜πŸ’˜πŸŒ»πŸ˜œπŸ‘³β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘πŸ‘ΆπŸ‘˜πŸ’…πŸŒΉπŸ˜³πŸ’“πŸ’₯πŸ˜‰πŸ™ŠπŸ’‚πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜
