Who should this digital teaching resource be used with? (ie year/grade)

The quiz created on Kahoot! Is designed for grade 4 students

How should it be used? (e.g. individual, whole class)

This quiz can be completed by students individually, in pairs, small groups, or a class. If all students have a computer, laptop or tablet to work on, the quiz is best completed as a class with the questions on a screen at the front. Each student will enter the pin number and a nickname to begin the quiz.

There are 10 multiple-choice questions, each question allowing 60 seconds to be completed. The students will receive points for each correct answer, the amount of points also based on the time they take to answer.

Which subject or learning area would it be most appropriate to use in?

The quiz that has been created is appropriate to use in maths for practice and revision of multiplication.

Identify the strengths of this teaching resource

This is a great opportunity for students engage in a fun learning activity. The colours, pictures and shapes make the quiz eye catching and exciting.

The multiple-choice guides students who are still not 100% comfortable with their multiplications.

Kahoot! can be used on the computer, tablet or smart phone.

Identify any weaknesses of this teaching resource

If students do not have access to individual computers, laptops or tablets, they will not be able to complete this as a class activity online. However, the questions can still be displayed on the screen for students to complete in their workbooks, or alternately they can complete the task individually or for homework.

If completing individually on a phone, it can be tricky as students will need to move between tabs to view the questions and answer them. However, in a classroom they will not need to access this on a phone.

Explain any ideas you may have for further use of this teaching resource

Kahoot! can be used to make more intermediate quizzes as the students advance in their learning, they could also make their own quiz to share with their peers. By making their own quiz they will still be working out the correct answers to put in the multiple-choice. Kahoot! can also be used to create surveys and conduct discussions with the students. After the students complete the quiz, I would like to hold a discussion to hear any ideas or suggestions they would like to propose for the next quiz.
