Blooket is a relatively new website in the world of online trivia and quizzes for teachers. It’s a website, not an application. You can construct “sets of questions” on any topic after registering an account as a teacher. You can also look for “sets” that have been prepared by other teachers. By developing a collection of questions, you can arrange games for your pupils.
Blooket is unique among the sites I’ve used with students in that the same set of questions may be utilised for a variety of game modes. A Gold Quest, Battle Royale, or even a Classic game (like Kahoot) might be hosted by the teacher, among five other possibilities.
There is no requirement for students to create an account. Students can join any game you host by visiting to blooket.com/play and entering the pin you’ll receive when you host a game. Students do not need to watch the teacher screen because the bulk of games can be played at their own leisure. They’re a terrific choice if you’re playing with virtual classmates because of this. You can host games so that students can play at the same time, or you can give students homework to complete in a certain amount of time.
I was able to discover some distinct advantages while exploring the site with my fifth graders. There are a few things to consider before you begin playing with your students.
What exactly is a Blooket?
Blooket is an online platform that allows teachers to create a game and invite students to participate by entering a code. Blooket can be offered to pupils “solo” so they can practise at their own pace without feeling rushed, or it can be launched by professors as a class to create the ultimate competition. Students can unlock Blooks by collecting points (cute avatars).
Your points can be used to purchase themed Blooks like the Wonderland Box or the Medieval Box. My kids frequently fight for Blooks such as the horse or the “fancy toast.” When a Blooket appears on their schedule, my middle school students are always ecstatic.
How to Organize a Blooket Game
If you have a Wiki account, you can host a Blooket. Simply go to the game’s website and log in. Select “Game Modes” from the “Host” tab, then “Select Gamemode” from the “Select Gamemode” button. Then select a game mode and customise your players’ parameters. You’re ready to play once you’ve chosen your game mode.
You’ll need a teacher account to host a Blooket. It is completely free to create a Wiki account. To make a game, go to the “Host” tab after you’ve set up your free, premium, or plus account. You can select a mode before deciding on the number of participants. On the left side of the page, you’ll see how many participants you’ll need.
You may choose the game mode and invite players to play if you have a Wiki account. You will be directed to a Wiki page where you can enter your game codes. Simply click the “Start” button and follow the instructions to establish an account. A series of questions will be asked of you. You’ll get a code in your email inbox if you answered the questions properly.
You’ll need a projector or a classroom to host a Blooket. Individually or in groups, the game can be played. The teacher selects the question set. The questions will then be answered by all of the attendees. Each player is allotted a certain length of time to respond. The game has a 25-minute time limit. It’s a fun approach to teach your kids the skills they’ll need to improve as musicians.
