Thanks to all our users that have been spreading the word about Kahoot! in EdCamps and PD training over the summer, hugely appreciated!
We’ve compiled this Google spreadsheet where you can find the events occurring across the States in August, where you can meet our amazing users who will be presenting Kahoot!… and may be even get a t-shirt :)
The Spreadsheet details who you should look out for, the date, website and twitter address. We hope you find it useful, and if you do end up at one of these amazing events please share pictures of everyone Kahooting with us on Twitter!
Remember, if you’re hosting or participating in an upcoming event, let us know! We’d love to help out where we can - see our blog post for more information.
A Spanish Teacher, Maria divided the project into two parts:
Two of our Kahooters, Brentson Ramsey and his colleague, David Mearns, teach an English preparatory program in Istanbul, Turkey to 14 to 15-year old ESL students.
At the end of the academic year, they asked the students to present their 3 favourite parts of the curriculum, be it academic or ICT-related, and they were kind enough to share with us the short video made by Sima, one of their students, who chose Kahoot as her favourite ICT-tools used in the classroom.
Check out the video! Nice going, Sima & Thank you!
Also, have a look at the blogpost they wrote earlier this year about Kahoot and how they use it to engage the students in reading.
Thank you, Brentson & David!
We love hearing stories about how Kahoot! has impacted people’s lives, no matter how big or small!
Jessica Runtz (@MagistraRuntz) recently Tweeted us to tell us about the messages her student’s left her in cards at the end of the year:
Many of my thank you’s specifically mention how much they love @GetKahoot and hope we will do it next year :)— Jessica Runtz (@MagistraRuntz)June 14, 2014
We wanted to see some of them, so she very kindly shared these!
Thanks to Kahoot! user Danit Isaacs (@Danit_Isaacs) who works at The Open University of Israel for this brilliant tutorial on how to use Kahoot! with right-to-left languages, such as Hebrew or Arabic.
As it’s still early days for us, Kahoot! isn’t ideally set up for right-to-left languages (stay tuned!), however, Danit has provided us with this excellent guide for how to make right-to-left work when creating questions/answers!
