THE VALUE OF KAHOOTS IN MY CLASSROOM – A REFLECTION

Kahoot quizzes – the concept and the websites – were introduced to me earlier this year. Since that time I have used other people’s, created my own, and had my year 9 English class and Level 1 External class create Kahoots as well.

Below are some links to my Kahoots, and also some student examples.

Reasons why Kahoots work for me in the classroom:

  1. If you create your own, you are testing the students, in a playful way, on the knowledge they have gained from your classes. This can be used to find out weak and strong areas of a certain task, and help you taylor (sic) your class tasks to narrow in on items which still need to be addressed and practised.
  2. You can search for ready made Kahoots if you don’t have much time. There are thousands! Also, you can check the Kahoot is suitable for your class by testing it yourself before giving it to the class.
  3. It gets really interesting when you ask the students themselves to create their own Kahoot based on the current topic of learning. I have included links to examples below.
  4. You can save the results from a Kahoot. The students all log in independently, so after a quiz has finished, you can save the results and check each student’s result. This can be used as specific and ongoing data for students, and also you can give feedback to specific students according to their results. I just noted briefly the results in my markbook.
  5. You can reward the top 5 students – who are known to everyone as these change after every question. This has an interesting advantage: Students are 100% on task and engaged, and also it brings out their competitive spirit. It really makes them do their best.  I also reward the top 5 with lollies!
  6. Even when they are creating their own, they are collaborating, researching and applying their knowledge, and therefore, also 100% on task and enthusiastic.

Some examples:

My Kahoots. I have 20. 5 have been created by me, the rest have been shared by other teachers, and my own students.

Here are two I have made for Year 9 Spanish:
