Evidence Based Kahoot!s:

For the “Permanent links” below, you’ll need 2 devices to play these Kahoot!s, a mobile device with the Kahoot! app and a tablet/laptop/desktop. Click on the link below on your tablet/laptop/desktop, then click–>play–>start now–>classic–>start. The Kahoot! should now show you a game pin. Start Kahoot! on your mobile device and enter the pin, then your nickname, then click start on your tablet/laptop/desktop which will display the questions. Answer the questions on your mobile device, use your other device to advance through the quiz.

For the “Temporary links”, you must use a mobile device with the Kahoot! app installed. Tap the temporary link below and Kahoot! will open automatically, just follow the instructions to play. The temporary links are just that, they expire in 1-2 weeks and if I haven’t gotten around to refreshing them (which is a pain in the butt) they may have expired by the time you decide to play. In that case use the permanent links as detailed above.
