Online learning may be seen as challenging because it asks students to become more self-disciplined in paying attention to their computer and focus on learning all the time. 

To help lower the pressure to focus, teachers should include fun activities that get students excited to participate and stay focused. 

We now introduce to you five exciting and interactive websites that help with online learning strategies! Plus they are all free to use once you sign up!

Note: We are not affiliated with any of the tools we mention below. We have used them in our online classes and we just think they are awesome fun!

Get ready for a little competition and a lot of fun with this fun tool that tests your learning skills. Visit the website or download the app on your phone and let the fun begin! Kahoot! is a game based learning tool that helps students reinforce their learning in just about any subject!

Teachers can create their own account and search for Kahoots for any subject. You can save already made Kahoots or create your own. When using this tool in the online classroom, teachers need to share their screens with the students. Students can use the accompanying website or the Kahoot! app on their phones for answering the questions. 

Note: when using the app, the questions do not appear so it’s important that students have two devices to use – one being the computer to see the questions and the other being their phone to answer questions.

Grade recommendations: Grades 6 and up.

Quizizz is another fun online quiz format where students can answer questions and track their scores as they move through each question. Teachers can also set it up as a competition to add more excitement.

Quizizz is very similar to Kahoot! in many ways when it comes to lively music and and energetic themes, but main the difference is that students can progress  at their own rate during the competition as they move independently through the quiz. 

Grade recommendations: Grades 4 and up.

Quizlet offers so much in the way of reinforcing ideas through flashcards, simple fill-in-the blank games, and ready made quizzes teachers can use to test student learning.
