Your very own MHHS colleagues have used Kahoot with success:
Christine Aragon: She used the Nooks and used it as a review for her students. She said "The kids loved it!"
Samantha Duvall: She has used it in several different ways. (1) When reviewing for test/ quizzes, she has students create questions for fellow classmates, creating both correct answers and distractors. (2) She creates her own quizzes, to have students review for books, subjects, and the upcoming midterm. (3) She also uses it to get students' opinions on subjects before starting a new topic or book. She said "It's very motivating because the students like to "play games" and they enjoy being able to use their phones. There is also an aspect of competition and they enjoy being in the top five."
