I’m the Executive Director of Information and Learning Technology at Greenwood College School in Toronto, Canada. As part of my role, I look after the portfolio of technology that helps teachers enrich learning. Because of COVID-19, one of my top priorities has been finding new ways to support and energize teachers, as well as equipping them with powerful tools for classroom, blended, and distance learning.
Kahoot! has been integral to our toolkit. It’s been woven into the fabric of learning at our school as far as I can remember, and it’s one of the most popular tools among our teachers. Students love it as well! When they hear the Kahoot! music, their eyes light up, and they get excited. It’s great for gamifying learning and building a community. Upgrading to Kahoot! EDU and getting a site license has helped us empower our educators with the tools to collaborate with each other and engage learners both in class and at home.
Seamlessly onboarding almost 80 educators to Kahoot! EDU
When I evaluate an EdTech tool, I start by looking at the security, the privacy, and the ability for the tool to work on all types of devices. Kahoot! EDU ticks all these boxes. Onboarding has been really straightforward: I simply send an email invite to teachers who request access. Close to 90% of our teachers are now using Kahoot! EDU, and it’s especially popular with math, English, geography, history, music, and French teachers!
