Ed Tech Tool of the Month



  • Create a fun learning game in minutes (we call these ‘kahoots’), made from a series of multiple choice questions. Add videos, images and diagrams to your questions to amplify engagement!


  • Kahoots are best played in a group setting, like a classroom. Players answer on their own devices while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson – creating a ‘campfire moment’ – encouraging players to look up.


  • Social learning promotes discussion and pedagogical impact… whether players are in the same room or on the other side of the globe! After a game, encourage players to create and share their own Kahoots to deepen understanding, mastery and purpose.
