Kahoot!

Kahoot!

Kahoot! Is a fun and interactive way to bring learning and gaming together. Students can play each other in the classroom or connect with students from around the world! Kahoot says it best- "After a game, encourage players to create and share their own kahoots to deepen understanding, mastery and purpose, as well as engage in peer-led discussions. When a learner becomes a leader, that’s a true magic moment!" (Kahoot!,2018).

Communication is key in the classroom. Teachers need to communicate with students, parents, family members, and even the community.

And don't worry Remind has built in safety features that ensure privacy is not violated.
