Using Kahoot to learn

Kahoot is a new type of quiz. The concept is that the quiz appears on a big screen and then the participants get to answer on their phones or pc´s. I have participated in Kahoot several times and I think the way the quiz works it`s an excellent learning material. It`s really fun to play and that helps a lot, you compete against your classmates. It`s a battle on appearing on the scoreboard (top 5) and the winner him/herself have accomplished a massive honor and glory. I have an idea where Kahoot will be most learning. After a long day of school students need to summarize what they have learned, and what would be better with a round of Kahoot in the end of the day?

People from the company Kahoot themselves even visited our class today. Three of them came from London and one actually came from Austin Texas! They were here basically to film us for a commercial. But during the day they observed us and how we made Kahoot`s, of course for improvements they could make.

If you wonder who and where Kahoot is founded then you should read this. “The Kahoot! platform and brand is developed by the founding team lead by Johan Brand, Jamie Brooker and Morten Versvik. The quiz is based on research carried out by Professor Alf Inge Wang and his colleagues at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The technology platform itself is based on the research conducted by Morten Versvik for his Master’s degree at NTNU. The Pedagogy and User Experience is based on work by Jamie Brooker and Johan Brand developed while working at their behaviour design company We Are Human in London” This is directly from Kahoot`s own website.
