Manteca Unified School District students on Monday, May 18, are participating in district wide Kahoot! in an attempt to set the world record for the most amount of “Kahooters” participating in a single quiz. Classrooms district wide will be participating in the engaging new platform alongside classrooms around the globe.
Kahoot! is a social learning platform built on the power of play and backed by academic research conducted at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. On a mission to empower and engage creators and players alike with over 45 million users worldwide, it allows anyone to create and play high-energy quizzes called ‘kahoots’ using any device with an Internet connection. Go to www.getkahoot.com or www.kahoot.it to join an existing game.
In a district release it was noted, “what really sets Kahoot! apart from other platforms is its transformative power to supercharge engagement — students chanting for more while the time-based music chimes away during questions, creating a flurry of energy once reserved for ‘recess.’ It became apparent that this isn’t about automating a traditional quiz; but rather turning learners into leaders — and creating an open dialogue for teachers and students to learn from one another”.
