Boost Student Engagement with Blooket: An Interactive Teaching Tool

Engaging students in today’s digital age is challenging

There’s a new interactive teaching tool that’s making it easier than ever:

Check out Blooket

This innovative platform transforms traditional lectures into interactive exercises, fostering a more dynamic and engaging learning environment.

Replace Slides with Games

Blooket is a real-time, multiple-choice game similar to Kahoot!

Instead of static, bullet-heavy slide lectures, create multiple-choice questions that students can answer on their phones with Blooket.

The faster they answer, the more points they earn, adding an element of excitement and competition to your lessons.

This approach not only keeps students engaged but also encourages active participation and critical thinking.
