A fun interactive competition for students!

There isn't much that I don't like about Kahoot. It is such a great digital tool for students to study, learn, and become experts in certain topics due to how fun it is, while also being a way in which they are still doing work. Instead of a critique, I do have a suggestion for the app however! I wish Kahoot would have an option where students can team up and answer questions in that manner. This would allow students not only to want to learn and study more, but also incorporate a means of them communicating with their classmates.

Great way to keep students engaged and participating!

Overall, I think Kahoot works really well in the classroom and engages students in a way that perhaps a normal quiz or review task would not. With a competitive nature, this allows students to practice the material all while participating in a game with their peers. Seeing students getting excited about the material and getting questions right is one of my favorite things to see, but as I previously mentioned, it is a little tougher to implement within a math classroom. In addition, in an SAMR model, I would place Kahoot in the augmentation category, as it directly replaces a quiz or review packet, but it also introduces an element of competition, as it is a game and students will want to win. With this being said, perhaps there is another similar platform that is higher up on this model. Also considering the TPACK framework, I do think that it may be challenging to address Kahoot with pedagogical knowledge, as it may not be best for all students and perhaps some would do better with a review packet that they work through at their own pace without a time restriction and the added stress of competing against their classmates. Some students may love that, some very well may not.

Great review game, will spark competition and test kids knowledge!

I think that Kahoot is very fun, interactive and engaging for the students, and I as the teacher love watching them get really into it! I love that I can make my own or I can find some that were created by others! I also love just using these as brain-breaks for the students and choosing a random one!My only downfall to this is that I don't always think it is a good indicator of students knowledge. Sometimes they get so caught up in trying to beat their friends they press the wrong answer or they are not fully thinking about the question being asked!
