Tips and Best Practices for Using Kahoot in Google Slides

To make the most out of using Kahoot in Google Slides, here are some tips and best practices to keep in mind:

Choose relevant and appropriate quizzes

Make sure the Kahoot quizzes you use are relevant to the topic and purpose of your presentation, and suitable for your audience’s level and interests.

You can also customize the quizzes to match your style and preferences, by changing the title, description, questions, answers, images, time limit, points, and other settings.

Use a mix of question types

Kahoot quizzes can include multiple-choice questions, polls, and surveys.

You can use a mix of these question types to create variety and diversity in your quizzes, and to achieve different objectives.

For example, you can use multiple-choice questions to test your audience’s knowledge, polls to get their opinions, and surveys to collect their feedback.

Balance the number and length of quizzes

You don’t want to overwhelm your audience with too many or too long quizzes, as this might distract them from the main content of your presentation.

You also don’t want to use too few or too short quizzes, as this might reduce their engagement and interest.

A good rule of thumb is to use one quiz for every 10-15 minutes of presentation, and to limit each quiz to 10 questions or less.

Use images, videos, and sounds

You can enhance your Kahoot quizzes by adding images, videos, and sounds to your questions and answers.

This can make your quizzes more visually appealing, stimulating, and fun.

You can use your own images, videos, and sounds, or choose from the ones available on the Kahoot platform.

You can also adjust the size, position, and duration of the media elements as you wish.

Encourage interaction and discussion

One of the main benefits of using Kahoot in Google Slides is that it fosters interaction and discussion among your audience.

You can encourage this by asking open-ended questions, inviting comments and questions, giving feedback and explanations, and creating a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

You can also use the chat feature in Google Slides to communicate with your audience during the presentation.
