The first Angry Birds game was launched in 2009 by the Finnish mobile game developer Rovio Entertainment. Debuting as a popular mobile game, now downloaded billions of times, it has since grown into a global entertainment brand, including numerous Angry Birds mobile games, series of animations and two blockbuster movies: The Angry Birds Movie and The Angry Birds Movie 2. In March, Kahoot! Academy teamed up with the Angry Birds to engage learners of all ages in learning about climate change, as part of the brand’s ongoing initiative to use “anger for good.” This collection will soon be available in seven languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian and Norwegian.
At Kahoot!, our goal is to empower everyone to reach their full learning potential, and we believe that starting with your emotions and building a healthy mindset is key. We’re excited to be working together with Rovio Entertainment to support professionals and corporate teams around the world in learning how to tackle challenges, solve problems and build emotional resilience, all while having fun playing engaging learning games!
This collection will include an introductory kahoot and six main kahoots, published weekly. Together, the kahoots create a course that includes not only the challenge of the game, but also commitments that encourage players to build on their learning, take action and drive real progress toward personal and professional goals. Kahoot! 360 Pro users can also access a special edition of this course that includes Pro features such as Word Cloud and Brainstorm experiences, enabling even more dynamic collaboration with colleagues. All users will be able to access and play the basic collection to spark meaningful reflection, conversations and growth.
“After a successful collaboration to raise awareness around climate change, we’re excited to continue our amazing partnership with the Kahoot! team,” said Stephen Porter, Brand Director at Rovio Entertainment. “Dealing with anger in constructive, useful ways has always been a core theme for Red and all the Angry Birds, and this partnership will help us share those lessons in a fun way with the world!”
The first kahoots in this series are now available to play on Kahoot! Academy, a knowledge platform and online community, which allows anyone to access content that supports engaging and meaningful learning experiences. All Kahoot! Academy content is available for all Kahoot! users, both through the website and on the mobile app.
