If there’s one thing the K!rew hasn’t lost from our days at school, it’s our love of field trips – and we’re lucky enough to continue the tradition at Kahoot! To make sure we’re creating a platform that our users love just as much as we do, we schedule regular class visits to hang out with the learners and leaders behind the magic. Our visit to Notting Hill Prep School was absolutely no exception and our host, Deputy Head David Gee, is a veritable Kahoot! Hero.
A big believer in intellectual discourse between teachers and students, he uses a range of tools and techniques to foster curious minds, a healthy learning space and academic excellence. We were of course excited to see how that translated to his Kahoot! sessions and are delighted to share some of his tips here!
1. Encourage problem-solving rather than guesswork!
In his Year 7 Math class, David encourages the students to use their workbooks and calculators to figure out the answers, and rewards correct answers with workings-out.
