• Kahoot is a game-based classroom response system
• Create and play quizzes, discussions and surveys using any device with a web browser
• Motivate participation through game-based learning and rewards in a social setting

This lesson includes screen shots and instructions for…
1. Setting-up a Free account
2. Creating quizzes, discussions and surveys
3. Searching and using Public Kahoots
4. How to Play Kahoot with your class 

Students love Kahoot! I know this from the feedback I receive from other teachers and from my own experience with using Kahoot. Students ask me “Can we please play Kahoot?” For every game there is always lots of laughter and students are very engaged. 

At the end of the 2014/15 school year, I gave students a day to complete missing assignments. There were several students who were finished all of their work. These students got together and set-up their own game of Kahoot. I did not suggest it, they just really wanted to play. This was more evidence for me that students love this interactive tool.

There are many uses for Kahoot including…
• Getting to know students at the beginning of a school year/semester
• Assessing student/class understanding of a topic
• Reviewing a unit before a test
• Surveying a class
• Having fun for a few minutes at the end of the day

UPDATE:I have added a resource that contains links to 10 – just for fun Kahoots that my students have enjoyed playing. Use these games to get to know your students at the beginning of the semester or for having fun for a few minutes at the end of the day.
