You never know the impact you’ll have on someone. Savor every moment with everyone. Make it memorable! Be awesome today!

Today’s tip is a fun one.  Kahoot! Kahoot is a game-based classroom (living room, family gathering, etc) response system. It is great way to review material, exit exams and just plain have fun. The way I like to describe it is that it is similar to “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” but everybody plays at once.

As the teacher, you would log into your  Kahoot!  account. There you can use 1000s of Kahoots that other teachers have created or you can create your own. There are different styles of Kahoots and I encourage you to explore. The questions are on the projected screen and the students use a device (phone, laptop, desktop, etc) to answer the questions. What makes this so fun is that you get more points the quicker you answer the questions. At the end of each question there is a leader board shown - everyone looks to see if their name is on that board. If you have the ability to put Kahoot on a bigger screen at you house using something like a Chromecast or apple tv, then it makes a great party game. My daughter and cousins played for hours over the last holiday.  

Everyone one that is playing must have a device so for those schools that are BYO, this a perfect tool to use. I suggest if you do not have enough BYO devices in a class have them team up.

If you have a projector in a computer lab then you can take the students into the computer lab and use the computers in the lab. For full instructions and a site to create your account, go to
