A live kahoot is a great way to engage any audience, regardless of their age, with any topic you want to discuss or teach.
How to play a live kahoot
Live Kahoot!’ing is lots of fun! A live kahoot is best hosted on a large screen (like a projector screen), so that everyone can see the questions.
When the game starts, you’ll see a PIN on the screen. Join by entering the PIN in our iOS/Android mobile app or at https://kahoot.it in the browser on your internet-enabled device. On the next step, enter your nickname and check if you see it in the game lobby on the shared screen.
After everyone’s entered the game PIN and a nickname, the large screen will display questions, answer options, and any related images/videos. The host can also enable players to view questions and answers on their own devices during the game. Review them quickly but carefully. Use your device to answer!
