Kahoot is a site that I recently heard about being integrated by a large number of teachers while I was attending the VEA IPD conference. What makes this site so popular? Kahoot is just plain fun. Reviewing content in a game-based platform is so appealing to teachers and students. Below is a link to a video I recorded as I think aloud to create a Christmas trivia game. The video is housed on Dropbox.
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
