GameOn World: Geography game that plays like Kahoot
The idea is simple. Start a game. Students browse to gameon.world on any smart device. Share a pin number with your students. Start the game. Project questions and images onto a screen. Students view questions on screen. They answer the questions on their device. Students see the results on the large screen.
And here’s the cool part. While there are a variety of topics, you can choose to focus on geography and history facts.
GameOn was created by a teacher and student from Maine and is in its first version so I’m sure that there will be more activities coming. And am hoping that the option for teachers to create their own questions is also in the works.
As the teacher, you can select different areas of the world to focus by clicking the Settings gear button.
GameOn is one more option to add to your tool belt – use it to review geography places and terms. Use as a hook activity or to simply increase student content knowledge.
Or, you know, play just cause it’s fun.
