Kahoot!

Kahoot is a website that allows you to create and deliver quizzes to any type of device. As a teacher, you can insert images into the questions as well as videos. You also control the pace of the quiz and set time limits per questions. Students earn points based on accuracy and the speed at which they respond. Results can be downloaded as an Excel spreadsheet. Kahoot is usually a "crowd pleaser." Click here for a short video.


Tip:

  • Once students get the gist of Kahoot, put the responsibility of creating the questions and answer choices on them. For secondary students, they could email you the information that would allow you to copy and paste to create the quiz.
  • Look in the "public" section of Kahoot to find 1.3+MILLION of quizzes already made. Just search for your topic of review. You can duplicate the quiz and then edit to customize the content.

Plickers

This alternative is a good option for 1 iPad classrooms.


Plickers is a rapid-response classroom polling tool that uses paper cards rather than mobile devices for student responses.

To conduct a poll, a teacher creates a question and projects it on-screen. Students hold up their custom response cards (each card is different), turning the cards in different orientations to indicate their answers (one side up for A, another side up for B, and so on). The teacher holds up a device (like an iPad or Android) and Plickers does two thing: 1. recognizes the students by name and 2. scans students’ responses, which are recorded. Responses can be automatically projected on a screen in the classroom, and teachers can track each student's responses over time.

Plickers can be used by the teacher from an Android or iPhone/iPad. Apps are available from the website.
