So Gimkit is very similar to Kahoot! but students can spend the money they earn on powerups, meaning to win you have to use strategy as well as answer questions correctly. One student that has 80% accuracy could beat a student with 100% accuracy based on speed and strategy. (Which is something I don’t really like)
All the content in Gimkit is teacher-made, so I could pull from questions other teachers have posted. They do allow text input, not just multiple-choice, but this normally frustrated my kids more than anything, because if they didn’t enter it exactly like the key it was counted wrong, even if they just added an extra space or something minor.
I will definitely have to check our Knowledgehook, I had never heard of it! But I would love to have a gameshow type activity that doesn’t force speed and allows work to be shown. Thank you!
