What is Kaoot
In addition to being a free online application, Kahoot allows you to design interactive questionnaires or use already designed questionnaires. This game-based learning platform allows students to ask themselves the same questions at the same time.
Despite its English-speaking interface, Kahoot makes it easy to create multiple-choice questionnaires, discussions, or even surveys. These multiple-choice questionnaires are created in advance by the teacher and put students in search of answers for a given time. Thereafter, points are awarded to each student according to their chosen answer.
In addition, thanks to this form of the questionnaire, it is possible to observe the number of correct answers obtained by the whole class for each of the questions. https://kahootlogin.co/
The “discussion” and the “survey” are used to get the class’s opinion on a subject. There are no points awarded. Only the teacher will be able to see the students’ choices.
Several questionnaires are shared with the community. In the search engine, by entering keywords in French and specifying the “School” audience, those that are most relevant in a school context will be displayed.
General Appreciation :
It is interesting to use this kind of web application, because teachers can work with tablets, computers and the interactive whiteboard at the same time. It also motivates students when they are against each other. The interface of the answers is very refined which allows an effective concentration on the choice of answer.
Yes, the creation website is in English. However, it is so structured and the words are so simple, it is easy to navigate and create questionnaires with ease. In addition, it is not necessary for the student to understand English in order to answer the questions since they are designed in French by the teacher.
As this web application is a general working tool. It is possible to use it in most school subjects. Here is a sample of what we can do in class:
More than 550 audio, video capsules, and especially Kahoot quizzes related to learning to spell, for each of the years of elementary school.
