What would make Kahoot! more awesome?

Show Questions/Answers On Every Screen/Device

Instead of just seeing four colors, I'd like the option to turn on having the text of the answer show up as well. This is especially helpful for students who have coordination issues reading off a screen and transferring the answer to their device.

    I agree that the question and text answers need to show on the students' screens. Many students have forgotten their glasses or need an updated prescription, or have difficulty coordinating the visual on the screen with the answer on their computer.

    The visual display is difficult to read in a whole class activity. The white print is too small, and there is too little contrast between the white print and yellow background. The print needs to be larger, and probably in black, rather than white. The background colors need to be lower intensity for greater contrast with the black print.

    I agree with this. Students with visual impairments are affected too. There has to be a better solution. Maybe, turning on the text for those particular students.

    It would need nice if students could see questions on their screen

    Please consider adding this feature--it would really make your product more accessible for ALL students, but especially people who have trouble transferring from board to device.
    Thanks

    Please, put the questions for kahoot on the student devices. It's really hard to have students of all ages look at the projector screen and know what the symbols stand for.

    Also, this would be awesome to allow kahooting from remote locations.

    This would be SUPER helpful! Especially if we wanted to do a competition with another class!

    I know it is so annoying when I have to put it on the big screen and that takes to much time.

    i gave this 3 votes because it would be very handy for student's that are in the back of the class!

    No, have the questions on the screen make you special, force kids to be social

    Students have a hard time finding the answer on the projector screen and transferring their answer to their devices they are answering on. Would you be able to add the answer choices to the shape/color block on their device so they could read the answers there as well. This will help for younger students.

    Yes they should let the answers show on the I pad because the other students always wait for the other student to put in there answer so that they can copy it.

    It would also be a way of enabling visually impaired students to take part because they can listen to the word whereas only listening to the colour is not really helpful in this scenario.

    We are a small buisness that work in diffrent Offices. We love the concept of kahoot, but it is a shame that we cant have a choice of option that makes it possible to have the question and answer on the Devices. since we want to make quiz`es that would allow us to have a joined Activity despite not working in the same building.

    Would really love if this could be a feature that you consider adding to Kahoot.

    I understand the issues of putting the questions and answers on the students' devices, wouldn't it be an idea to allow this as a game option for the teacher to set at the beginning of the quiz? Just a thought!

    Others have suggested this, just thought I would add my voice too.
