Powerful, diagnostic, games-based AFL- Kahoot!!!
Kahoot is a tremendously useful, free AFL tool I recently came across after a Twitter recommendation. Students can use any web-enabled device (any OS platform) to take part in games-based quizzes. There are thousands of quizzes publicly available, or you can create your own in a simple drag-and-drop editing tool and add to the public pool. There are many maths-based quizzes already in the public pool suitable for KS3 and GCSE maths classes.
Students can access the quiz without needing logins and passwords, making it easy to use in class. They simply go to kahoot.it in their web-browser and type in a game-pin number. The game begins and students answer multiple-choice questions, scoring points for speedy correct answers. The leaderboard is updated after each question to build the tension!
After the quiz you can download a colour-coded spreadsheet of all your students’ responses. The students love it- I love the AFL!
