How I Use It
I used this product to review for summative assessments as well as a formative assessment tool. As a formative assessment, I used Kahoot for entry and exit tickets, and as a check for understanding throughout the lesson.
My Take
Kahoot took my students by storm. We had used a similar tool throughout the year, but I had never seen them as engaged as I did with Kahoot. The competition aspect of the game had the students at the edge of their seats. After I introduced it, the students would come to class as ask for Kahoot. I also noticed that students who had struggled in all the previous summative assessments made gains after we reviewed with Kahoot. This is definitely a tool that I will continue to implement in my practice!
