Kahoot for retrieval practice and consolidation

This video demonstrates how an online quizzing too can be used for retrieval practice and consolidation.

In this video, Kimberley Doyle, a teacher at Prescot Primary school (primary), shares how she makes use of an online quizzing tool for retrieval practice and consolidation of new learning.

In classroom footage, you’ll see how Kimberley makes use of the tool, for dealing with misconceptions and consolidating learning so that pupils can move on. You’ll hear how she has established routines around the use of the tool and how the quizzes support her own planning so that she can assess, address and adapt to meet her pupils’ needs.

The tool used by Kimberley is:

  • Kahoot – An online multiple-choice quizzing tool

Whilst Kimberley makes use of iPads, consider what might enable you to achieve similar in your own context if you don’t have a 1-1 iPad scheme.

If you choose to focus on this case study as part of this week’s learning, you can share any initial reflections and questions with the course community in the comments space below.
  • How might any of these approaches be applied in your own context to solve a challenge you’ve identified?
