Kahoot is a game-based classroom response system. It allows you to create and play quizzes, discussions, or surveys (called Kahoots) using any device with a web browser. It's easy to use and engaging, and it allows you to create meaningful questions which will, in turn, motivate student participation in a social/classroom setting. There is a searchable database of pre-made Kahoots you may use as well.
