How I Use It
I use Kahoot for review. Students enjoy the competition to see who knows the subject best.
My Take
Kahoot is a good review tool, however, setup can be cumbersome. It does not truly indicate a student's knowledge because some slower students may need more time and the more confident students could get off task easily because they may answer the questions quickly and then become board waiting for the timer to release the next question. Graphics are helpful when trying to differentiate for various students. It would be better if the educator could see the students answers without having to go through so many steps.
