I learned about this resource this summer from Richard Bryne when we both presenting at the Future Learning Summit in Chicago.
I like this Classroom Response System for a few reasons…
1- It appeals to a variety of learners… Kahoot lets you insert pictures into the questions and that works well with visual learners, special education students, and ELL students.
2- It has great prompting tools, you can adjust how much time students get for each question and students see the timer displayed. Also, it displays a scoreboard so my students get very competitive about who is in the top five.
3- You can differentiate content by assigning different point values based upon question complexity.
4- There is an option to add other media into the question which relates to 21st Century Skills and the Common Core.
5- It is possible to download the class results into an excel spreadsheet and disaggregate student achievement dta.
