When someone talks about playing Kahoot! in the classroom, the first word they say is FUN! It is absolutely fun and engaging. Students and teachers alike take to the music and the colors very quickly. Playing Kahoot! is addicting, and after talking with co-founder, Jamie Brooker, I'm convinced that teachers and students haven't even scratched the surface of what the tool can do. It is so much more than a formative assessment tool if you are willing to push the boundaries.

Kahoot Product Info
Behind Kahoot!’s playful exterior, an intelligent game-based pedagogy transforms learners into leaders (and great leaders into lifelong learners). Kahoot! is best played in a group setting, like a classroom. Players answer on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson – creating a ‘campfire moment’ – encouraging players to look up. This creates an inclusive learning environment where everyone feels success, and each individual's needs can be addressed. You can use Kahoot! to introduce new topics, adapt individual learning through formative assessment, review and reflect, and to add meaning to global classroom connections. Gameplay challenges knowledge, promotes discussion, emotional engagement, neurochemical reward and social learning. Students are also encouraged to create their own learning games to deepen understanding, mastery and purpose - taking them on a journey from Learners to Leaders by taking on the role of researchers, creators, teachers and ultimately becoming leaders.
