January 2016

Today the SES Technology team met to discuss the following topics for our school:

  • Kahoot!
  • TodaysMeet

  • A resource area for our colleagues to share our news updates monthly on technology tips, tricks, and topics.

What is Kahoot!? How can we use Kahoot with our students?

A Kahoot is a collection of questions on specific topics. Created by teachers, students, business-people and social users, they are asked in real-time, to an unlimited number of “players”, creating a social, fun and game-like learning environment. You can create your own Kahoot! OR you can search topics or ideas on Kahoot! and find ready made Kahoots by other teachers. Check out the below article for more information and some great ideas!
