Maybe Quizizz is the best alternative to Kahoot and that’s why we wanted to start with it.

Classdojo: Aula y casa is another very good app developed almost exclusively for teachers, parents and of course, students, they can interact with each other with each and every one of the games it contains.

As we already have some very good apps dedicated exclusively to classes, we wanted to vary a bit and focus now on one that is not designed for it although it can be used in the classroom. It is called Poll Everywhere and it has been created so that you can carry out many surveys with which to obtain trends and specific data from the people surveyed. In this way you will know what your audience, your students or whoever is answering prefers.
The app is very basic and has a simple and intuitive interface that you will learn to use in a very short time. Also if you do not have the app downloaded and you are part of those who respond there will be the possibility of replying via SMS from the mobile phone and thus the response will also be counted. If not, you can always download the app, click on the “poll” link and enter to reply. In the end, it is the best option, although today SMS usually cost € 0, therefore, we do not care a bit. It does not hurt to know the option.
All the responses that are made in the created Poll are collected and the same system will do a graph in the purest Excel or Power Point style to be able to add the collected data one after another and make everything more visual. A hoot. Despite the latter, the app weighs about 14Mb, so you can always have it available on your phone.
And since we have given you download data from the previous ones, Poll Everywhere was not going to be less: It already has more than 500,000 downloads since it was launched in the Google Play Store. We can say that it is a very good app for its purpose.
