FOR KAHOOT - Please set up a "split" screen to play Kahoot on one side and keep the classroom on the other screen so that they can see the questions. OR - Some students may have better experiences using Kahoot on a separate device (e.g., smartphone or tablet) to view questions and answer choices while participating in the Outschool classroom. This way, they can have both screens visible simultaneously. SPLIT SCREEN: Manual Split Screen (Windows 10 and 11): Open one program. Click, hold, and drag the program's title bar to the left or right edge of the screen. Release the mouse button. Open a second program, and it will automatically fill the other half of the screen. Using Snap Assist (Windows 10 and 11): Open one program. Click, hold, and drag the program's title bar to the left or right side of the screen until it snaps into place. Open a second program, and it will automatically take up the other half of the screen. On macOS: Using Mission Control (macOS): Open both programs you want to split. Click the green "Maximize" button on the first program's window to make it fill the left half of the screen. Click the second program's window and manually resize it to fill the right half of the screen. Using Split View (macOS El Capitan and later): Open both programs you want to split. Click and hold the green "Maximize" button on the first program's window. Choose to move the window to the left or right side of the screen. Release the mouse button. Click on the second program's thumbnail to activate Split View. In this class, we play free games with links to KAHOOT and BLOOKET.
