Technological Tools



  • Kahoot! is a free Web site that allows teachers to create quizzes and surveys in which participants compete against each other. Scores are kept according to accuracy and response time, and top responders are revealed after each answer.
  • It is a game-based classroom response system played by the whole class in real time.
  • Quizzes can include music, pictures, and videos and are easily added to the background. There are two types of questions: multiple choice and true/false.
  • Students can use smartphones, tablets, or computers to respond to the questions. Students are asked to enter a screen name and the game code to get started.
