Distance Learning: Kahoot!

This week, we jumped back into Term 2 and my maths students are engaging in a two week continuation of our statistics unit we were in the middle of before the isolation period began.

In addition to completing learning tasks found on our class site, the students are engaging in daily Google Meets to check in for clarification purposes and to have their questions answered. One of the things that we have grown to enjoy as a class is playing Kahoot trivia together.  We decided we should still do this as a class in our Distance Learning classroom.

Click Here for Kahoot!

If you haven't tried Kahoot with your online (on in person class) I strongly suggest it for formative assessment and review purposes (or sometimes just for something fun!).  You are able to make up your own quizzes or select one that meets your needs from a rather extensive database.

Today, we used a statistics quiz as a review. It was great because I was able to display the graphs to my class after they answered the question and discuss the questions they had about the graph and question. I was also able to extend their knowledge by providing two questions that covered vocabulary and a graph that was new for them. We had great discussions during our game today.

Another very cool feature is that Kahoot provides a detailed summary of each question via email after the game has ended. Here is an example:

We will continue using these Kahoot quizzes during our distant learning to provide a platform for extension, review, formative assessment, and plan old fun with our friends!
