I was introduced to an awesome tool by a school teacher and colleague. Kahoot!, she said is fun way to keep students engaged.
Kahoot! is a game-based learning platform that's competitive, interactive, FREE, easy to use, and can be customized to your specific learning needs. Players participate by using their own device – a smartphone, iPad, laptop, or desktop, doesn’t matter, as long as they have a browser and a good internet connection. (Your youth will love that phones are permitted during youth group time!)
Kahoot! games are displayed on a shared screen – for example a smart TV, a laptop or an interactive whiteboard. You can also use screen-sharing tools like Skype or Google Hangouts to include players from other communities or other parts of the world.
Through quizzing, collaboration, and presentation of content, Kahoot! initiates peer-led discussions, with students left on the edge of their seats.
I was excited to use Kahoot! during a youth missions conference, and had a couple hundred participants having competitive fun while learning more about God.
Your Youth and Leaders will LOVE IT!
