The new Interactive Quiz Game is part of
the version 2 KidiPads/MidiPads software. It is a "beat the buzzer" style
of quiz game with up to eight teams competing to win a quiz based on any
range of topics. It can be used to support learning activities with students
of all ages and is a really enjoyable whole class activity. The software
has an integrated web browser to search for quiz questions - or have your
class write their own quiz questions as part of the research into a topic.The
MidiPads can have buzzer sounds and the automatic updating of team scores
helps to build excitement.
Port Lincoln primary school ran a whole school maths quiz challenge using this new software with great success. Teacher Karen McConnell has been a leader in ICT for many years as a coordinator and eTeacher and she has been trialling the new version 2 KidiPads software for a short time. The photographs and video below will give an overview of the Port Lincoln experience.
