We are thrilled to announce that Kahoot! has been named a Common Sense Selection for Learning. This prestigious award acknowledges exceptional media resources and tools that enhance learning experiences for students and educators.

The process for receiving such recognition involves a thorough review by Common Sense experts who use independent rating criteria and pedagogical rubrics to assess and review products. Any products that receive exceptional reviews undergo a more in-depth evaluation process by the Common Sense editorial team, who then hand-select the final recipients. 

Being honored with this badge underscores Kahoot!’s commitment to making learning awesome and impactful in classrooms worldwide.
