Who, What, Wear: British Fashion in the 1930s and 40s sashays into our Featured list for a rather stylish twist on learning. Find out what we loved most about this British Fashion kahoot…
We were looking for British kahoots to play along with our new Brit-inspired Kahoot! theme music, and came across this fantastic kahoot by brookeajackson: Who, What, Wear: British Fashion in the 1930s and 40s. Here’s why we thought it was a great kahoot to play, plus a few tips on how to adapt or play it.
When you’ve worked hard to create an awesome kahoot, it deserves to be played by as many people as possible. Think about what will make your learning game stand out from the crowd, especially when it’s for a popular subject. This Kahoot!’er used a descriptive title to make the game super easy to find, plus a catchy little play on words to reel in players. Nice.
No matter what the subject, we always recommend using high quality photos and videos – not only do they increase engagement, but they also help crystallize concepts for people who are more visual learners. In this kahoot, brookeajackson takes the use of images a step further by getting players to scrutinise them to correctly answer a question.
TOP TIP: Make the photo questions even trickier using “image reveal” animated gifs – here’s how! Remember to click the Full Screen button (top right) before or during gameplay to make the most of your pictures.
We love how the questions themselves are peppered with interesting facts and discussion prompts, giving us many more opportunities to learn something new. Take the question below for example – just by the way the question was phrased, we learned that this person won a Nobel Prize, which prompted some thinking and research about what the Nobel Prize was for, and discussion about pioneering women in science. Wow.
