Kahoot - a game-based platform for learning

Kahoot is one of the fastest growing learning brands and we are using this tool to great effect in our classrooms. "It engages the heart, hand and mind for deeper pedagogical impact and supports connected learning and stimulates social learning and collaboration."

The learners just love being able to answer quiz-based questions in an engaging and fun way where they are challenged by their peers and within limited time frames. The results are immediate and real-time. Kahoot is therefore a great tool for testing learning. 

It works on any device with an internet connection and for teachers there is no setup time and involves simple one-click game play.
