How I Use It
This app should be used when there is reading that you want the students to engage with. What works the best is that you input questions into Kahoot that have come from the reading and then have the students compete. The app works even better if you add an incentive to winning the game.
My Take
This is one of the best teaching tools for helping your students engage with the homework that you may have assigned them. I think that the students become motivated to engage because all of the other students will see if they have done their homework. Also, the timed element helps keep it competitive and allows for students to compete with themselves. This app could be a little more helpful if it included user profiles that students might want to share on their social media.
