How I Use It
I have used it during tutoring and in whole group. It allows me to assess which areas the students need more understanding. also allows students to self reflect. When we follow-up they are able to tell me what areas they need to work on such as inferencing and they can tell me which areas they have done well in such as summary. It's quick and easy to setup and use. You can create your own kahoots lessons or use an existing lesson.
I think it's great for assessing. I would not rely strictly on just using kahoot for a lesson, it is more for assessing or as an exit ticket.
