A few weeks ago and outside the labor issue, attending a cultural conference in the EOI La Laguna. In those days I had the pleasure of participating in a kind of interactive quiz. The contest used the Kahoot tool. Do not know what is that?, take it easy, here's the surprise. This is a great tool to encourage and motivate students because its usage is a learning game format very effective. In our case, we used it to compete in a quiz about Ireland, its history, customs, geography etc., but usually its used to make an exam, as a review before a final exam or to settle ideas.
Each person accesses with a unique PIN code which is supplied by the teacher or the person who leads this contest and access online with the rest of the participants, seeing them on the screen. For each correct answer and the time used to answer, points are assigned and so on until the end of the game.
I thought it was a great form of gambling and ideal for use in classrooms learning as well as in small reinforcements of training courses in which you have to settle ideas or concepts.
This Norwegian application is completely free, with many uses in education and training sector. I from now on I'll use in the training of CMS definitely.
