Kahoot is a free student-response tool that serves as a platform for administering quizzes, facilitating discussions, and collecting survey data. It operates as a game-based classroom response system, allowing real-time participation. Questions are displayed on a shared screen, and players respond using their smartphones, tablets, or computers, creating a social, enjoyable, and engaging game-like environment. Kahoot enables the creation of multiple-choice quizzes, polls, and surveys that generate immediate data. The interactive nature of quizzes and polls promotes quick instructional decisions and whole-class discussions. Both teachers and students can utilize Kahoot to create, share, and play learning games in hybrid or classroom-based learning settings. In summary, Kahoot actively engages students and enhances immersive learning experiences.
