Transcript of Kahoot!
Kahoot is a game-based website in which
teachers AND students can create their own quizzes, discussions, and surveys based on any topic they want. Kahoot uses personal devices such as smartphones, tablets, or computers in order for students to learn in an interactive gaming format.
Why is Kahoot important to use with English learners?
Kahoot is important to use with English language learners because it allows English learners to apply the increasing technology usage standards with that of the standards required for English language learning.
Students are able to use and implement real-world technology in concordance with their knowledge and learning of the English language.
Kahoot allows ELLs to express their own knowledge and understanding through their personal responses to Kahoot games and quizzes, and allows them to interpret and recall their knowledge of the English language in creating their own Kahoot quizzes, discussions, and surveys
How does Kahoot help ELLs develop language skills?
When working in groups, students are able to communicate and collaborate with one another using the target language (English).
When making their own Kahoot games, students are able to recall and implement their knowledge of English using technology.
When creating a Kahoot quiz or discussion students are given a sense of empowerment because they are briefly the ones directing the class and directing instruction and learning.
-It's a free program!
-It keeps students engaged in their learning
-Students are able to collaborate with one another
-It allows for anonymity with students so they cannot tell who is answering wrong and correctly
-A great tool to use for reviewing material
-Students get a sense of empowerment in creating their own quizzes, discussion questions, or surveys
1. Students need to be able to access their prior knowledge about technology and the material.
2. Students will need to have their own e-mail address to be able to create the quizzes, discussion questions, and surveys using Kahoot.
3. Students who have not previously had access to the technology will need to be paired with students who have, to work together.
4. Students at different levels of English learning should be paired together in groups so that all groups are at an equal learning level.
5. The teacher will have to show students how to login to Kahoot.it using the game pin with technology devices to play teacher-created games.
6. The teacher will have to model for the students how to use Kahoot to create quizzes, discussions, and surveys, and will have to scaffold them in creating their own.
Rationale & Theory
-According to a 2013 study by researchers E. Afari, J. Aldridge, B. Fraser, & M. Khine; research indicates that games (and therefore, game-based learning) have the potential to draw students into the learning process and to encourage them to participate through a more interactive environment.
-Additionally, in a different research study in June of 2014 regarding foreign language learning, researchers found that a Game Based Learning approach to foreign language provides more effective learning compared to traditional methods, develops positive attitudes in students and increases the retention process” (Dourda, Bratitsis, Griva & Papadopoulou, 2014).
-Finally, in a 2012 study researchers found that using 2-D and 3-D visualization allowed for students to create meaning, interpret, and express their learning.
