Kahoot

This tool allows those teachers with an interest in gamification to design and use learning games in their classroom. There are 4 different formats available: quiz, discussion, survey or jumble.

Evaluation: It is necessary that both teachers and students have a device (computer, smartphone, tablet...) in order to use the games in the classroom and a data projector or screen to share the results. The results are very appealing and dynamic, and the tool is easy to use after some practice. Some schools have sets of tablets, say one between two that can be used for certain lessons, others may use in a computer room or on students’ own mobile devices.

Cost: Free with registration
