In one of my graduate courses (CEP 812) this week, I spent some time researching learning strategies to help students with learning impairments, specific to my classroom setting. The disorder that I chose to research, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is one that afflicts so many students with whom I work–for that reason, I have explored the disorder in a white paper. In the paper, I present information on the disorder from the APA and other scholars, present research that suggests the Universal Design for Learning may provide a solution to disengaged learners in the classroom, and present a tool that embodies these characteristics: Kahoot. To read the full-length white paper, please click here.
For more information on Kahoot!, please take a few minutes to preview the following video:
Finally, I provide a quiz below that shows an example of how the tool might be used to effectively assess students with ADHD. Follow this link to view the model Kahoot! quiz that I used in my classroom.
