Kahoot is a response tool but does not require any sort of proprietary equipment like clickers or installed software; it is web-based so it will work in any setting and on any computer or mobile device. Teachers easily create questions, invite students to participate by entering a simple code from Kahoot, then the product delivers timed questions with a catchy Jeopardy-like jingle. Feedback is provided immediately to the class (in an anonymous way) then Kahoot generates an ever-popular leaderboard based on response accuracy paired with response times. The interface is so easy for students that it works at every level of instruction. RCPS teachers who use Kahoot comment that students routinely request to do this class activity. Trainers and administrators use it in professional development sessions with RCPS teachers, too!
Recently, Cindy Parks (an ITRT in RCPS) was featured on the Kahoot website for her work in bringing this tool successfully to RCPS primary classrooms.
Kim Fawley demonstrates Kahoot in her JFHMS classroom in the following video:
