CHES SPED iPad App Challenge - April 2015

April's Challenge

Hopefully, you've had some time to explore Dreambox on the iPads. What do you think? This month, we're exploring Kahoot. I was very excited to share this with you last week. Have you had a chance to further explore it yet? If not, there's still time. It's such a great way to bring formative assessment back to life in your classroom. Use it as a pre/post assessment, use it as a quick exit ticket or use it to review for upcoming quizzes or tests. You will instantly get the feedback and data that you can then use to better help your students. So, go ahead...create a free account and get "Kahooting."

Your Challenge

  • Either find an already-created Kahoot, duplicate and tweak it to fit your students or create your own. Use it with your students. I did figure out how to duplicate one that's already made...simply hover over it and the word "duplicate" will appear to the right of the title. Click that and get to tweaking.
  • Submit your review when finished. The link to the review is below.
