Kahoot!, the global learning and engagement platform company, today announced the launch of Kahoot! Multiplication by DragonBox. This new app is the crown jewel in the award-winning series of Kahoot! math apps created by DragonBox.
“Every year, millions of kids across the globe face the daunting challenge of memorizing the times tables. Reciting times tables often leaves children uninspired and unmotivated to learn multiplications,” says Eilert Hanoa, CEO, Kahoot!. “Our new app gives educators and parents an exciting way to keep their kids engaged through fun game-based learning adventures that help children discover the joy of math on their own terms.”
Kahoot! Multiplication by DragonBox keeps young learners engaged with more than 20 mini-games, each developed by learning design experts with engaging animation, memorable characters through storytelling and captivating gameplay. As children explore the wide variety of activities, they are challenged to apply what they learn in different contexts and develop flexibility with their multiplication skills, helping to make their newly acquired learning skills stick.
The app does not require prior knowledge of multiplication and adapts to each child’s individual level, making it easy for children to play and learn independently.
Embark on a fun math learning journey with Kahoot! Multiplication by DragonBox, children ages 9 and older can master their times tables through a meaningful and memorable gameplay experience. They will be able to build confidence in understanding the logic behind multiplication while enjoying the process of learning through a wacky multiplication journey.
Developed by a team of pedagogy and didactics experts and learning experience designers, Kahoot! Multiplication by DragonBox integrates learning science with compelling gameplay, creating an experience that motivates kids to keep leveling up their multiplication skills.
DragonBox’s math teaching methods have been tested and developed in collaboration with more than 60,000 teachers and students. Additionally, recent studies in Norway, done by the Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research, and Education (NIFU), showed that using the DragonBox tools in classrooms led to improved performance on math tests, higher motivation for math learning and more skilled teachers by using the DragonBox math curriculum.
