To kick off the back-to-school season and support educators with a successful school year, we hosted the Kahoot! EDU Meetup: Fall edition on September 22. Thank you to all the participants, 7 awesome speakers, and always-inspiring ambassadors that made these three hours of live sessions (and live kahoots!) enriching, practical and playful!
If you would like to re-watch your favorite sessions or you were not able to attend, video recordings will be available on the event page.

Curate and host entire learning experiences with Courses
Now with Courses, educators can design full class sessions by combining different content formats, such as kahoots, documents and exploratory digital activities into comprehensive learning experiences right in the Kahoot! platform. Educators can combine various playful, game-inspired activities to engage students during an entire class period (from the start of class to the end of class) that spark curiosity and engage students in deeper thinking.

Incorporate playful learning to reflect and celebrate students
Kahoot!'s new Director of Pedagogy, Louisa Rosenheck, challenged us to rethink learning loss by exploring the many learning gains when it comes to important soft skills. She discussed how learning through play is a great way for students of any age to explore new concepts and build future-ready skills. There are many frameworks for playful learning that we can start using right away! What are some ways you incorporate play into your class?
We hope these sessions empower, enrich, and inspire you to continue to be the superstars that you already are - stay awesome!
