ProDuring the lockdown period my school has not been offering live Zoom lessons to our students, so I have felt it important to stay connected with the students by other means. One method of doing this has been to schedule live games with my students each week via announcements in the stream in Google Classroom. I have been using a mixture of Quizlet live (now that it has an individual player setting), Quizziz and Gimkit. Each game has its own merits as they can be applied in different ways, and I believe that it's important to use a variety of games to keep our students engaged. Below is a quick summary review of Gimkit, and for those of you exhausted by watching online videos, a simple PDF explanation of how to use it.
