Gimkit , created by Josh Feinsilber , plays like a Kahoot game, but students earn money for answering questions correctly, lots of it if they are good at it. Josh is a junior at a Seattle high school that encourages projects and internship as school work.

In the classic mode students on their own and in team mode they compete in teams. There are 4 game options:. Once you have chosen a game, press play and a code will be generated.
Jump to navigation. Cons : Website security and privacy don't seem to be a priority for Gimkit, so use with caution and be aware that it's not COPPA compliant. Bottom Line : Put students in the driver's seat with collaborative setup and gameplay features. The live gameplay is fast-paced and engaging like a game show, but when it's assigned for independent practice, Gimkit functions more like flash cards. Speaking of Quizlet, you can import Quizlet sets text only into Gimkit with just a few clicks.
