Not many apps are so versatile that you can use it with year ones, undergraduate students and any ages in between, but Kahoot is.
Kahoot is an assessment tool which is incredibly easy to use for both teachers and students. With a teacher account you can create quizzes or surveys which have up to four answers. You can also add pictures and videos to the text of the questions. To run a quiz, students enter a 6 digit code into the app, then their names and that’s that, they’re in.
For teachers, the best is yet to come. Once the quiz is complete, results for learners are sent through on a colour coded spreadsheet, giving you an instant view of the strengths and weaknesses of your class by both student and question. This makes it a very effective assessment for learning tool.
When I introduced Kahoot to the staff at my school it was a real ‘wow’ moment and it’s now widely in use throughout all year groups. The link below will take you to an example based on a KS1 internet safety video which you can try for yourself.
