Teachers use Kahoot for assessing learning

4th and 5th grade classes were being assessed using an online assessment tool called Kahoot.  Teacher's enter questions and then display the question for the class to answer using their devices. Student's can use any internet accessible device. This was a great way for Mrs. Small's 5th grade students to Bring Their Own Device and onboard them to the district network.  Mrs. Wozny's 4th grade students were able to use their Dell Venues as part of the district NGDC pilot.
