Kahoot! Game-based blended learning

What is Kahoot!?

Kahoot is a game-based classroom response system for schools, universities and businesses.

How does it work?

Create and play quizzes, discussions or even surveys (which we call Kahoots) using any device with a web browser… including a laptop, iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android, Chromebook, Windows Phone or PC and more — see full list.

Using our simple and speedy ‘drag n drop’ creation tool, create and manage ‘Kahoots’ in the form of quizzes, surveys or polls related to specific topics; either asking quick questions ‘on the go’ to get feedback or opinion, or more in depth questions for formative assessment. Content can be shared with educators, learners or colleagues globally.

The teacher launches Kahoots on the screen at the front of the room, and learners join through their personal devices. In real-time and with gaming elements to increase engagement and motivation, learners answer questions through their personal devices. Educators get an overview of the current knowledge levels of everyone in the room for formative assessment, and can adapt their teaching accordingly.

Through their personal device, learners think up and answer their own questions through thorough research and the collation and/or self creation of imagery and video. Their learning is reinforced by thinking up potential wrong answers to questions, as well as the right ones.
