I have students use real names so that I can use the data results for instruction. Kahoot provides real time results that can be downloaded for use. Teachers can create games or use games in the public area.”

Learners of all age can benefit from Kahoot. Today, many students possess smart devices, and by using Kahoot on their own devices, students can actually make group learning fun.
