Glenn is a distance educator from the most easterly point in North America, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. He has the unique challenge of teaching high school French to students in small communities located throughout the region. Fluent in both English and French, Glenn is proud to be involved with CASLT (Canadian Association of Second Language Teachers) and to have received the CPF (Canadian Parents for French) teacher of the year award.

Glenn is a keen supporter of gamification platforms and he finds that they provide engaging and interactive opportunities to his students in the virtual classroom. In this session, participants will be presented with a host of “edutainment” techniques which will enhance student participation and engagement. Participants will learn how to oversee these games in a live environment or how to set such activities as tasks to be completed for homework. These formative assessment tools may be assigned to help teachers assess students’ knowledge and comprehension- and prepare students for deeper in-class (remote or face-to-face) interactions.

Glenn has provided engaging and interactive professional training to second language teachers, particularly in the areas of internet resources and software that teachers and students can use to enhance their second language and technology skills.

00:58:13 Joe Dale: If Glenn is happy to share yes
01:00:43 Vincent Everett: With Kahoot, can you pull in questions/answers from somewhere else or do you have to sit down and build each one?
01:01:03 ALL London: Great – I will put everyhting to do with this webinar on the ALL London webinar page – recording / chat / ppt
01:01:21 Joe Dale: Not sure Vincent
01:01:25 Ramesh: you can use an Excel template and copy/paste vocab into it then upload it
01:01:53 Vincent Everett: for example with gimkit I can import from quizlet where I keep all our knowledge organisers
01:02:31 Sarah Flint: we can hear
01:03:11 Vincent Everett: sorry, that name came up in autofill
01:03:36 bbennett: the temptation to put in some names my students come up with!
01:04:01 Vincent Everett: Ah. Is there a thing to stop them putting in rude names
01:04:18 Kim Stickland: Yes, exactly as he says – it’s really quick
01:04:31 bbennett: @Vincent cursor over name will let you remove it – lots of practice
01:04:36 Vincent Everett: Aha.
01:04:49 ALL London: @Vincent – at school I put the screen which shows their names on a second screen they cannot see. ..
01:05:03 cecilia giordano: Also, if you like 2 or 3 kahoots, you can merge them together
01:05:10 cecilia giordano: Using combine
01:06:13 Joe Dale: I ran out of characters!
01:06:14 Chris Jadav: You can use mentimeter for word clouds too
01:06:34 Joe Dale: Yes Chris
01:06:47 Fiona McHardy: but you have to pay for mentimeter…
01:06:59 Joe Dale: No Fiona
01:07:10 Fiona McHardy: with my class?
01:07:21 ALL London: This is such a goodidea for presenting a product ..
01:07:22 Joe Dale: You can have 3 slides per presentations and unlimited presentations
01:07:35 Noelia RG: Hi, I can only hear metallic noise, I cant hear Glenn can anyone help please?
01:07:49 Fiona McHardy: Delighted to stand corrected, thanks Joe
01:07:57 Joe Dale: NP Fiona
01:08:42 ALL London: @noelia – he is there

01:11:14 Gordon’s iPad: do I need to look at the zoom version then go to the Kahoot!? in Kahoot! I only see the shapes
01:11:19 Vincent Everett: Can you put it again as a separate slide?
01:11:41 Joe Dale: Yes Gordon
01:12:09 ALL London: Lady Lavinia rules!!!!
01:12:14 Joe Dale: I don’t know Vincent
01:12:33 Vincent Everett: Kahoot works so the teacher screen has the questions and on pupils’ devices it’s the answers. So has to be done in synch – although Glenn showed how to set it as an assignment which I would prefer. Otherwise lots of waiting around.
01:12:36 ALL London: I love this gradual reveal feature!
01:14:35 ALL London: Joe Dale knocked off the leader baord – oh no!
01:14:53 Joe Dale: I know! Gutted!
01:14:58 ALL London: 🙂
01:15:59 ALL London: Bravo, Paxton!

01:17:40 ALL London: So close, Lady Lavinia!!
01:18:26 Joe Dale: This is good for German word order apparently
01:18:32 ALL London: What a lovely way to engage students
01:18:38 ALL London: @Joe – yes!
01:20:12 ALL London: ‘Pure genius’!
01:21:12 Chris Jadav: Did anyone else feel ridiculously competitive?
01:21:23 Kim Stickland: ‘maple bacon’??
01:21:25 ALL London: I confess Chris, yes!
01:21:25 Joe Dale: 🙂
01:21:35 bbennett: Lol Chris Yes! and stressful
01:21:36 Jesus Santos: hehehe
01:21:42 ALL London: Guio!!! Bravo!
01:21:55 ALL London: Please don;t show who is bottom …!!
01:22:01 Uxía: I really liked the puzzle option, than you for showing us!
01:22:04 Guiomar Mancho: Thanks! That was fun 🙂
01:22:25 Vincent Everett: Kahoot seems so slow. Is that why pupils like it?
01:22:44 Fiona McHardy: You can change the timings
01:22:47 ALL London: @Vincent – you set th etimer as you want
01:23:10 ALL London: I only allow abouy 10 seconds usually
01:23:34 ALL London: Great list Glenn – thanks
01:23:49 Fiona McHardy: Sorry, where’s this going to be shared tomorrow?
01:23:58 ALL London: Oe Dales’ youtueb channel
01:24:05 ALL London: Joe Dale’s youtube channel
01:24:06 Fiona McHardy: Thanks
01:24:30 Karine: Love it
01:24:39 Vincent Everett: Ah. I did wonder how it was going to work as an individual game.
01:25:50 Vincent Everett: Not sure it works asynchronously
01:26:08 Vincent Everett: That’s what I thought individual mode was for but you have to have minimum 2
01:26:24 Joe Dale: Gotcha Vincent. Everyday is a learning day!
01:28:18 Shannon Swann: I played this with my class but as the teacher I couldn’t see the questions. Is there a way to see that and also see students’ progress (the horse race)?
01:28:35 Vincent Everett: It almost would work asynchronously because you do have all the answers on your page. So they could have made it against the clock. But if it’s against another player then you have to start at the same time.
01:29:01 Vincent Everett: The students don’t get the same questions at the same time. So you wouldn’t be able to see that.
01:29:13 Vincent Everett: I can’t hear josh
01:29:17 Kim Stickland: can’t hear him
01:29:17 Joe Dale: Could you split your screen Shannon?

01:29:33 Chris Jadav: Nor me
01:29:34 sta.darby01: Cannot hear him at all
01:29:39 katep: Same
01:29:39 Sylvie: Oups did not mean to write in capital letters
01:29:40 sophia.micelli: Please just summarize it.
01:29:46 Shannon Swann: I don’t know how to split my screen…Sorry not very techie. 😉
01:30:48 Uxía: no

01:34:03 Uxía: Q: Does Gimkit work with Google classroom?
01:34:46 Sharon: Q: Is Kahoot Pro available free in Europe too?

01:40:30 Ramesh: yes it was fun
01:40:41 katep: so fun
