How I Use It
We have used Kahoots as a pre-assessment before starting an activity, as well as a post-assessment at the end of a unit. If I'm using it as a pre-assessment, it's easy to see what topics we can spend less time on during the upcoming unit, and what topics we need to focus on a bit more. If I'm using it at the end of a unit, it helps me know when we need to stop and review before moving on. Kahoots are also a great way to reinforce test-taking skills, like reading all answer choices BEFORE selecting an answer.
My Take
The kids absolutely love it and remain engaged the entire time. We've used it in both team and individual modes, and the kids love the competition aspect of both. I like the immediate feedback on questions to help me figure out what we need to spend a bit more time on.
