Last week I posted a survey asking you to select your favorite new app or website of 2014. After five days of collecting responses I’ve closed the survey. Kahoot is the most popular new ed tech service amongst the 216 of you that voted.
Kahoot is a slick service for creating and delivering quizzes to your students’ tablets, iPads, and laptops. On Kahoot you create a quiz or survey that your students respond to through any device that has a web browser (iPad, Android device, Chromebook). Your Kahoot questions can include pictures and videos. As the teacher you can control the pace of the Kahoot quiz or survey by imposing a time limit for each question. As students answer questions they are awarded points for correct answers and the timeliness of their answers. A scoreboard is displayed on the teacher’s screen.
Check this chart to see how Kahoot compares to eight other student response systems.
