KAHOOT!
Are you still struggling with your students not putting their phones away? Stop the struggle and make them
use their phones in class. Kahoot! is an online, game-based platform which can be played on any device with
Internet access. There are three formats: quiz, survey and discussion. The quiz format is great for reviewing
for tests and informal or formal assessments. It also allows score keeping! The survey format can be utilized
to gain feedback for a single question. The discussion format will allow the individual to post a question in
which all individuals can reply. But, be warned that this may ignite a debate!

sk anyone today the definition of technology and the majority of individuals will
say that it is something that society uses
that is electronic. However, that is not
the case. Merriam-Webster defines
technology as "the use of science in
industry, engineering, etc., to invent useful things or
to solve problems." By definition, a dry erase board
is a piece of technology as it was invented to solve
the problem of chalk dust and that horrible screeching sound! The reason why people link technology to
electronics is the shear speed at which electronics
are evolving to meet the needs of their consumers.
These tools below consist of websites and apps that
can be utilized in the classroom by Educators and in
the office by Administrators. Some are fairly new, while
others have stood the test of time.
