How I Use It
I was introduced to Kahoot by a technology facilitator actually used this with a group of teachers in a professional development session. I am currently using Kahoot to help students review for exams. I had to test out the timing the first time I used it. I actually set too much time for students to answer questions. The countdown is great for students to see how much time they have. The bar graphs are good to see quickly how students responded.
I really like this tool for quick reviews. I don't think I will use this for a long review game. It would work much better as a quick review at the beginning of the day to see what kids remembered from the previous day or a quick review at the end of the day to sum up information learned during that lesson. I could also see this used as a good questioning device to see what students or staff already know about a topic as you start a lesson or professional development.
