My Take

I think it is a great teaching tool because it is a fun and engaging way to get your students to review concepts. I like that there's a huge bank of Kahoots already created, but make sure to do a run-through individually before assigning it to the class because sometimes there are errors in Kahoots created by others. The only thing that I don't like is that students have figured out a way to hack it where they can see the correct answer for each problem in order to win so just keep an eye out for that.

How I Use It

I have used several of the math-related Kahoots created by others in the community and most of them are great for general use. I prefer creating my own and incorporating questions that are more related to the types of questions students will see in their textbooks. I will usually do a Kahoot towards the end of class as a review of the day's lesson and it's a great way to end class. The students always get really excited when I tell them there's a Kahoot.
