Quizziz vs. Quizlet Live vs. Kahoot

“I think Quizizz, Kahoot, and Quizlet Live are all useful, interactive, and fun ways to learn and/or review any concept, each with its own advantages as well as drawbacks. All three feature search capabilities so that you can find and edit games that have already been made by others; however, if you want to create game from scratch, it’s fairly intuitive,” said Michael Chappell, teacher at FVHS.

The value of Quizlet Live in the classroom.

“Besides helping students master key educational content, using Quizlet Live also helps them boost important soft skills. They work together as part of a team to answer questions correctly and ultimately win their Quizlet competitions. This is something that intrinsically helps them build collaboration skills. They’ll also learn more about what it takes to enhance their communication skills since clear and quick conversations drive success in the fast-paced games. Plus, students are constantly broadening their vocabulary and learning that it’s more important to be accurate than fast when solving problems.”

Quizlet VS Kahoot
