Wednesday, November 9, 2016 - a free quiz, discussion, and survey tool

While at the MCMLA conference in Des Moines a few weeks ago, I took a CE class on innovative instruction. One of the tools the presenters showed us was Kahoot. It's a really fun, free tool you can use to create quizzes, surveys, and to prompt discussions.

I decided to test it out last week with a few nursing classes that came to the library to use CINAHL for the first time. I created a four-question kahoot on unusual medical/health research. It took 1-1.5 hours to get it created, tested, and up and running. One person "runs" the kahoot and the rest of the room plays along on their phone, tablet, or computer. 

Here are a few screenshots. The first is the question and possible answers, the second highlights the answer. See what you think. It was a great way to break the ice and ease into our topic for the session. You could just as easily do it remotely as in person. Maybe there's room for a kahoot or two in your teaching repertoire?
