Share a Link

Play a Kahoot in class (or a meeting/ PD session), then:

  • Share the link with students and challenge them to review the material and play again at home- review scores the next day to see who reviewed at home, who gained a better understanding of the material and guide classroom discussions.
  • Share the link with another teacher to have classes battle against each other- on the same campus or around the world!

Superintendent's Retreat

October 12, 2015


Teachers can upload or create assignments that let students type, enter numbers, draw (with a mouse or their finger, depending on the device), upload an image, or answer multiple-choice questions. Teachers can create classes (manually or by filling out a template spreadsheet) and then distribute their assignments to students through classes or via an access code. Teachers can watch their students' responses arrive in real time via the teacher dashboard, and teachers can send back grades (manually our automatically) and also send longer narrative responses in reply.
