Web 2.0
Web 2.0 is a description of a range of web services that
collectively represents the ‘second version’ of the world
wide web. There is no definitive list of such services (not
even a definitive list of the types of service that make up
Web 2.0), but they all have certain characteristics in

● web (rather than PC) based

● user control of data (rather than the data being
owned by the hosting service)
● user-friendly and interactive environment
● collaborative/participatory facilities
Web 2.0 is better described by example than definition.
Services such as Googlemail, Wikipedia and Flickr exhibit
clear Web 2.0 characteristics. 2

Kahoot! is a tool for using technology to administer quizzes, discussions or surveys. It is a game based
classroom response system played by the whole class in real time. Multiple-choice questions are
projected on the screen. Students answer the questions with their smartphone, tablet or computer. ​

Kahoots are best played in a group setting, for example, a classroom. Players answer the questions on
their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson. It creates a ‘campfire
moment’ encouraging players to look up and celebrate together. Besides creating your own kahoots, you
can search among millions of existing games.​


How it works
Go to Press on the large purple “GET MY FREE ACCOUNT” button. Fill in your role
(teacher), your school or university, create a username, supply your email and select a password. ​

How to use Kahoot!

You create the quiz, survey or discussion item. After you have created an account, you will see a screen
with three icons for a quiz, discussion item or survey. Make your selection and build your game.
Questions have a 95-character limit and have up to four answer options. Select the correct answer by
pressing the red “Incorrect” button. It will turn green and say “Correct”. Choose a time limit between 5
and 120 seconds. You may embed an image or a YouTube video. Continue to add and edit questions
using the toolbar on the bottom of the screen. To complete the quiz, select “Next” and follow the
instructions. You may add a cover image and you select whether you want to make your game public or
private. You are now ready to launch your game.

Features and Capabilities
Teachers can see if students truly understand the material that was covered through the use
of both Kahoot quizzes and surveys. It is a way to see student understanding of material.
Kahoot gives teachers the ability to track student performance of the game to make
adjustment in teaching or reteaching in some instances. Kahoot is that teachers can easily
use either Kahoots that have been made by others for public use or create their own Kahoots.
The ease of this website can allow teachers of all technology skill levels to use this website
with their students.

Educational uses
1. Review for Assessment – The main way we used Kahoot in our classes is as a review for an
assessment. Rather than give out a packet of review information, we would play Kahoot.
2. Check for Understanding – Kahoot could also be a great way to break up the middle of the
class to check for understanding.
3. Team Up – I prefer to have every student adding value to an activity, but you could easily
make this a team game where you split the class into several groups and take the total of
each of their scores at the end.
4. Have Students Create Their Own Kahoots – I’m a huge fan of student choice projects.
Students could take the material from a particular unit and create their own Kahoots.

I would definitely
recommend this. Students
really have to understand
the content to be able to
create questions and
answers. What a great
way to move students
from learners to leaders!
