Gamified Learning Kahoot! Online Quiz Games
Kahoot! gamifies learning and assessment. Gamify is a concept where a boring, routine task is turned into a game. It can also mean that tasks that are low interest are turned into higher interest because game-like features are added. We do this all the time as adults. Think about reward cards, purchase points, small entries into contests, etc. Education and Technology found creative ways to blend games and learning - Kahoot!
Black History Kahoots!
I created these Kahoots! because I wanted my 4th and 5th grade students to study Black History content for themselves, and also in preparation for the Black History Month Quiz Bowl events. Kahoot! gamifies study. I included some basic questions, but most 4th and 5th grade students already know the basic 20-30 people and events that are always covered in superficial Black History Month reviews. These are slightly deeper questions. Play the games again and again. Research new content. Get the perfect score. Rock on!!!
