Quizizz Games

 


There are several interactive games online to increase student engagement.  Today, I’m sharing my experience with Quizizz.

Quizizz is less competitive than the others but still has the competition piece. I like that this game can be a more self paced game allowing questions to answer at their own pace.  You can also play as a team which brings in the anonymous factor which I love.  The groups are randomized and I don’t want students to know who is in their group to avoid peer pressure or negative comments if they do poorly.  The anonymous feature assigns all the kids a random and weird name.  The final part I really like is watching their progress bars in real time, which allows we especially while virtual to see whose engaged, who’s struggling, and who’s ready to move on. Similar to other online games, you can download a break down by question after the game to see student results. Similar to other games you can make your own or find ones that are already made and update them to your needs.  Overall, I like Quizizz more for classwork or homework. If you want more information on how to create your own check out the short video below.

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
