- By Kristal Kuykendall
Kahoot announced today it will offer a free 60-day site license for all staff members in any elementary school worldwide as part of its new EDU Support Program, designed to help overwhelmed educators keep students connected and engaged during ongoing learning disruptions caused by the pandemic.
Kahoot’s platform offers ready-to-use content created by Kahoot-verified educators and premium partners, helping teachers “save time creating engaging lessons for in-person or virtual classrooms,” the company said in a news release.
“Teacher shortages and the uncertainties caused by the ongoing pandemic have impacted the learning journeys of millions of students worldwide,” said CEO Eilert Hanoa. “We believe that during these challenging times, it's vital that we all step up to support schools, educators and students so that they can continue to make learning awesome. ... We need to make teaching accessible for the educators who are stepping up to fill the gap.”
School administrators worldwide can register their school and sign up for the free 60-day licenses at the Kahoot EDU Support Program website. After submitting the form, school administrators will need to create a Kahoot account to start adding their school's teachers and personnel into their Kahoot EDU account.
Kahoot said its new program gives school administrators the ability to:
- Connect and onboard all teachers and substitutes in their school/district within the Kahoot platform
- Create collaborative lessons shared between everyone in their organization
- Access ready-to-use content created by Kahoot Verified educators, premium partners, and global community of educators
- Access a private team space with an unlimited number of groups for teachers to share their content libraries and lesson plans
- Connect with Kahoot Experts during weekly live office hours
- Access exclusive resources to make the onboarding process seamless and as quick as possible
Schools can apply to the Kahoot EDU Support Program starting today. The plan does not require credit card registration or commitments and will be available for all schools worldwide until March 2022, Kahoot said.
