In science, I used Kahoot for the first time. Kahoot is a software that allows you to connect devices like iPods and iPads to the interactive whiteboard and do quizzes. My class and I had to enter in a code and then wait for everyone else to join up. When everyone had joined, a multiple-choice question came up and they were labelled with shapes (triangle, hexagon, circle and a square) we had to select the shape depending on our answer.
At the end of each question, we were able to see our points and who was in front of us and who was behind. My whole class loved it and every person got involved. We learnt a lot from it and it was a very suitable, easy revision tool that was perfect for a starter. The only problems with it was that people could choose their own username which can always be a bad idea, and it took a while for everyone to get joined up as there were technical difficulties and people messing around which ruined it for other people. However, Kahoot helped me learn and remember things for my exam and I would gladly use it again in hope that people would treat it fairly. By the end of it I think my class and I had found it very useful and I hope to see it being used in my other classes.
When the results came up at the end, I came second which I am really proud of. Kahoot easily shows us where we are at and what areas we need to improve in depending on which questions we could answer easily and which ones we couldn’t.
This video shows how Kahoot can be beneficial to use in class, this could help teachers in their lesson planning and revision sessions. This shows the advantages of Kahoot and what it can do.
