Kahoot is a game-based learning classroom response system that can be used to assess students' knowledge in a fun, interactive way. All you need is Internet access (wi-fi if using smart devices) and a computer/laptop/iPad/tablet/smart device per teacher and student/group.
Teachers can create a free account at getkahoot.com, and then they can browse through a selection of quizzes made by other educators or create their own.
Students join the game by going to kahoot.it and entering the game pin on their computers, laptops, iPads, or other smart devices. Students will proceed to answer a series of questions by selecting the shape on their screens that corresponds with the correct answer. As students answer, Kahoot ranks students by their correct responses and how quickly they answer.
