I posted this initially in April of 2017 but I thought I’d share it again since I believe it can be an exceptionally good way to review for tests, not to mention reinforcing information in a way that engages the students and creates a little fun along the way:
I know you are always on the lookout for an activity to use after 9:00 that will actively engage students and make that last hour meaningful.
Here is one activity that will do that. Kahoot. Kahoot is a classroom engagement software that is free to instructors and provides an interesting way to engage students in content. I’ve included some links to a couple of tutorials about how to use Kahoot below.
It will involve you setting up the activity in advance but on the plus side, it can be used over and over again as you teach the class. This would make a great test-review session and could spark some interesting discussion as well. Don’t be put off that the tutorials are based on secondary education models – this will work just as well for adults in that last hour of class. I’ve been in a session when this was used and I can personally vouch for how effective it is.
Please post a reply to this if you use it and let me know how it went.
