what are kahoot alternatives free? Learning should be a fun!!! Its always of great interests of teachers to engage the students by adapting modern ways. By using the modern techniques, we can engage students to be more focused, cooperative and responsive. Students should be given an environment where they do not get bored and love to learn.
Interactive and hands on learning activities are required by the early childhood students. It is the best practice to use technology for engaging students in early childhood in interactive learning activities. The repetitive learning and practice will mater them before they are moved to the next level.
Online learning has become necessary especially after pandemic (2019 to 2021). So teaching was not limitized to merely lectures and passive based approach. There are many tools available for making learning interactive such as : google classrooms, many web based applications, that help early childhood students in learning.
