Frequent Flyer #2: It's a Kahoot!

Kahoot!

Kahoot! is a fantastic eLearning tool which I heard about at a workshop presented by Tony Vincent at the Slide-2-learn Conference in Sydney. Basically, teachers and/or students create quizzes/surveys/discussions on ANY device which has a web browser. You can also embed videos and images into the quiz, allowing students to watch and respond. When a quiz is created, a game pin is generated. Players use this game pin to play. They join the game from any device, through the Kahoot app or by ggoing to 'kahoot.it' in any web browser. NB: You don't have to have an account to participate in a quiz. Questions are answered in real time and scores are displayed on an on-screen leaderboard...very engaging and a heap of fun!!!! In order to see how it works try the Public Quizzes !
