Kahoot!

Kahoot is a game-based website that allows teachers to create games with multiple choice questions for the students to answer. The session is played as a quiz with game show music and points awarded to students based on speed and accuracy. After each question is answered, a graph displays how the group did as a whole. The top five places are also shown after each question.

  • Wait for the teacher to begin the game.
