Kahoot! Create, play and share fun learning games for any subject, for all ages, for free!

kahootCreate a fun learning game in minutes (called a ‘kahoot’), made from a series of multiple choice questions. Add videos, images and diagrams to your questions to amplify engagement!

Kahoots are best played in a group setting, like a classroom. Players answer on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson – creating a ‘campfire moment’ – encouraging players to look up.

Social learning promotes discussion and pedagogical impact…whether players are in the same room or on the other side of the globe! After a game, encourage players to create and share their own kahoots to deepen understanding, mastery and purpose.
