There are several issues when creating your own Kahoot. Image sizes are not standardized. If you create an image, it may become unclear or too small when on the Kahoot site. There are also other ways you can use images to create better Kahoot questions. This section will explore these things.

Part 0 - Intro

A quick introduction to how to create your first quiz and the different components that make up this process.

This overlaps a bit with the last section on homework. You can have your students participate by creating their own Kahoot media. Images, questions, videos. Their level of participation and creativity is up to you. Feel free to design the overall structure of the Kahoot and ask the student to create a specific media type that can be added to it.

Part 3 - Student Participation

What is the ideal length for questions and Kahoots? Well, this depends on your students. Test it out. If a question is too long, the student is going to loose interest. If it is too hard, cheating becomes a "better" game-playing strategy. If it the time is too fast, and they can't figure it out in time, they are going to give up and may not even try the next one.

We are going to be utilizing the way the mind works to teach the students in a way that will promote long term learning. We'll also explore ways to ask questions which the student can use deductive reasoning or information learned in-game to figure out the answer.

It is better to learn over gradual periods of time than it is to cram.

The timing in Kahoot doesn't match perfectly with Pimsleur's study. Teachers all have their own style and subject, so question timings will be different. In general, adapt this model to the flow which best suits your needs.

We want to introduce new topics through Kahoot. In order to do that in this setting, we need baby steps that are fun and force semantic processing.

Author David Ring III was born in MA, in 1983. After an atypical upbringing that left him with a negative mindset, he began to seek freedom from his pessimistic thoughts.
With very little interest in the corporate world, he left university in 2006, and began traveling the world. There was no reason to travel; it was just what people aspired to do. For David, he was living life and searching for

From 2007-2010, he settled in central New Hampshire.
After buying a large, beautiful Victorian house in Franklin, NH, the economy went into recession. He began his first business venture, turning this home into a family business, a bed and breakfast. After a few years of this slow and simple living, it was time for himto move on.

Upon coming to Thailand in 2010, he begin writing his first
novel, Bound Before the Morrow, hoping to portray his own personal journey out of negativity and to inspire others to do the same. During the five years it took to write, his views changed slightly, and
spirituality entered the mix. The book still maintained the original message, but a new way of life had opened for David.

David still bases himself in Thailand. He avoids the heat by escaping into air conditioned coffee shops and plunging himself into writing. In this way he gently and articulately shares his philosophical beliefs.
