One of the core goals of learning is to remember what’s been learnt in classroom beyond it, and be able to apply this knowledge to practical problems.

With our new personalized learning feature you can help your students reinforce learnings from classroom kahoots, remember content better, and retain the new knowledge for a longer time365体育官网. Powered by the Kahoot! app (available for iPhones and iPads, most Chromebooks and Android smartphones), the feature adjusts to each student’s performance in classroom kahoots and lets them learn at their own pace after class.

What you and your students need to use the personalized learning feature:

  • Upgrade to Kahoot! Premium for schools
  • Toggle Personalized learning on next time you start a kahoot in class
  • Students will need to play in the Kahoot! app on iOS and Android (it’s free for them to use!)

How personalized learning works

When you start a kahoot in class, toggle Personalized learning365体育官网 to “ON” in game options. Students play kahoot live in the Kahoot! app on iOS or Android devices. As they go, the app remembers which questions that were most difficult for each student.

After the live game, the app prompts students to replay difficult questions. They play at their own pace in the app until they’ve mastered all questions, with repetition rounds spaced out over 7 days. You can follow their learning progress in a detailed report and see which of your students might need follow up.

Based on spacing and testing methods

Our personalized learning feature is based on spacing and testing, psychology-backed learning methods that improve knowledge retention.

Spacing effect means that we remember information more easily and retain it for a longer time when we learn it in multiple, spread-out sessions. Testing effect, in its turn, shows that using tests for practice after knowledge is obtained helps us retain it for a longer time.

As learning expert Olav Schewe explained in his recent guest post, “when students answer test questions on a topic they learned some days or weeks ago, they’re using both spacing and testing. And when the testing is done without pressure, i.e., when it’s not tied to any formal grading, it gives students a quick snapshot on how well they remember learning content and what requires more learning focus.” Read more about the science behind spacing and testing in Olav’s article!
