Gain support, inspiration and recognition within a global educator community on Kahoot! Academy

In honor of World Teachers’ Day, we celebrate (you!) the global community of educators who strive to make learning awesome every day. Kahoot! Academy has accepted the mission of building you a virtual educator community to connect, collaborate, and support others around the world.

October 5, 2021

Educators, we’re listening; as the challenges of teaching have increased, it’s even more necessary to provide you with what you need to help make learning awesome. In a Kahoot! survey ran earlier in this year, 63% of you shared that staying virtually connected with other educators is very important, especially as teaching modes have shifted to hybrid and virtual. Learn about what you can do on Kahoot! Academy to connect, collaborate and engage with thousands of educators who are just as awesome as you are!

83% of educators indicated they will continue to utilize online educator communities to support them and their teaching.

Exchange new ideas and high-quality content

You told us that one of the biggest motivators of online communities is to gain new content and ideas. Thousands of educators on Kahoot! Academy have already joined the Kahoot! Academy community where they can create, share and soon monetize their content. Users can trust that the ready-to-use content from Verified educators on Kahoot! Academy is high-quality and engaging.

Provide emotional and practical support

One of the very special Community features on Kahoot! Academy is found in the Community tab, where educators can create posts, with or without attached kahoots, for all of their followers to see. This allows educators like you to provide emotional and practical support to others. Pedro, Miss N and Brendan frequently update their Community sections to show gratitude, share advice and excitement, and provide new ready-to-use kahoots for others.

 

Gain recognition for hard work and help others feel recognized

We see you! As a Verified educator, you can showcase your own content on your profile page, and you can access and share others’ ready-to-use content throughout Kahoot! Academy. Verified creators who go the extra mile in sharing new kahoots, posting to their community, and gaining new followers may get featured in Top picks or Discover, as well as in blog posts, newsletters or on social media. We want to show the world how awesome you are!

Coming soon: feedback opportunities

Because we know that it’s important for educators to receive feedback on their content, these soon-to-come feedback features will allow educators to provide positive responses on others’ kahoots.
