I have written several times about my love for Kahoot, but I have never really taken the time to calmly and properly explain how to create a Kahoot. That's why I'm going to do so right now. Here is an easy step-by-step guide on how to make the classroom rock!
Kahoot is a tool that makes it possible to create fun and engaging quizzes in a simple way. The most common way to use it is through quick knowledge questions, but you can also use questions that require more thinking. Kahoot will automatically add compelling music to your quizzes, that makes it more fun.
First of all, you need to know the difference between kahoot.com and Kahoot.it. These two addresses lead to different sites. When you want to create a Kahoot, you will need to use:
the other address
is used by the students when they want to play.
Step 1 - Sign in
Step 2 - See if you can save some time
Step one when you want to play Kahoot is to click "Discover" in the top list. Here you'll find Kahoots from all over the world, and you can copy and use them for free. It will save you a ton of time if someone already made a Kahoot that you can use in full or edit just a bit for perfection!
Keep in mind that the more precise your keywords are when you search, the more accurate Kahoots will appear in the list. I often use the name of the book we use as a keyword, and I usually find dozens of Kahoots made by colleagues for each chapter in the book.
Step 3 - Modify your Kahoot
Step 4 - Play and have fun
When it is time to play, you click "Kahoots" at the top list and look for the Kahoot you want. When you click "Play" you will get two choices. If you're going to let the games begin right away you choose "Teach", and without further ado, you can select "Classic". After that, the only thing left is to listen to the students rejoicing!
When the number is displayed the students may go to
or start the app on their phones and write the number and a nick-name.
Everything else will take care of itself if you just press "next" every once in a while.
I am the technician who became a librarian, but who got tired of the quiet and peaceful life at the library and started working as a teacher. I brought with me everything I knew about databases, information retrieval and networks and soon I was an ICT-educator. Today, I work as a teacher at Komvux in Norrköping.
I have always had a nerdy great interest in technology. I can find interest in everything from robots to model railroads or the steel industry of the industrial revolution. Technology should take us forward and prevent us from everything boring. You need to dare to be somewhat lazy and ask yourself if there is no easier way to get something done. The human desire to get away is what has driven the technical development and find time for other things. Like model railroads, for instance!
