Teachers must display the Kahoot so that students can view questions.  Students go to kahoot.it and enter a game pin.

Since student names are displayed on the scoreboard, I ask them to use an alias.

Answer choices are displayed in a very basic way since question details only appear on the teacher display.  The simplicity of the student display, and the fact that it can be used on any internet-enabled device make this game ideal for a BYOD setting.

Students are given a set amount of time to answer each question, but questions will advance once all students have answered to speed up the game.  Students earn points for correct answers based on how quickly they answer.  In addition to displaying score updates, answer details are provided after each question.  This enables teachers to discuss misconceptions and commonly missed questions.

Insights After Every Question

Detailed data on student responses to each question are available at the end of the game by question or by individual student.  Kahoot is a favorite among students, while providing teachers with meaningful feedback.  Check out their blog for tutorials, tips, and tricks.
