Teacher Review For Kahoot!

Because the teacher controls the speed at which the questions appear, there is time to discuss each question and reinforce information, add explanations, hold discussions before moving to the next question.

How I Use It
Students suggested this app would be a great way to go over homework - creating Kahoot questions based on worksheets in order to retain interest and focus. They also suggested a Kahoot as a way to ask comprehension and discussion questions about a section of text to focus on important details and retain interest. I plan to try both approaches.
My Take
I've not used Kahoot a great deal, but I can see potential for learning and retaining interest in important concepts in a fun way.
