Using Kahoot to learn

Hey people! Today we got a visit from the international team of Kahoot! The crew were mostly from English speaking countries like the US and Australia, but we had some Norwegians too. They filmed us for a commercial, so that they may further promote this tool for fun and educational Q&A. It was quite easy for me to make a Kahoot about Ernest Hemingway, because I just used my previous blogpost to get some facts about his life. We worked in groups, so that the process of making the Q&A was quite easy. My partner, Benedicte, found some quite interesting and fun facts. The learning part of the Kahoot is essential. If you get a wrong answer, they will show you what was the correct answer, and you will never do the same mistake. I recommend Kahoot to other teachers and students because this game is quite fun at the same time as it is educational. According to Wikipedia Kahoot is “ a free game-based learning platform, and one of the fastest growing educational technology brands in the world. Launched in August 2013 from Norway,[1] Kahoot! is now played by over 50 million people[2] in 180 countries. Designed to be accessible to classrooms and other learning environments worldwide, Kahoot!’s learning games (“kahoots”) can be created by anyone, for any subject and for learners of any age. As Kahoot! may be played using any device, desktop or laptop with a web browser, it is rapidly gaining traction in classes with “bring your own device” policies.
