How I Use It
Each new unit has a specific vocabulary. Teachers can use this to assess students' knowledge of the meaning of vocabulary words associated with a specific unit. Incentives can be tied to Kahoot winners who achieve the highest score.
My Take
Kahoot is fun as long as it is not overused. Unfortunately, students eventually realize that when they quickly guess right, they receive points for both the right answer and the quickest response. That is not the purpose. This tool is great as a formative assessment tool so teachers can determine if students know the base knowledge and can move to higher levels of learning.
