Thai High School Students’ Perceptions on the use of Kahoot as an Educational Tool in the English Language Classroom
This paper examines Thai high school students’ perceptions on the use of Kahoot as an educational tool in the English language classroom. Classroom research has been conducted by distribution of a survey to 86 high school students from Demonstration School of Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University, Thailand. The research findings show that the majority of Thai high school students perceive the use of Kahoot as highly beneficial in all aspects, in particular regarding the students’ motivation level to learn English in the classroom, the attention paid to the teacher’s language instruction and also as a tool that helps improve the students’ proficiency level. Based on the research discoveries, suggestions are made that Kahoot is a valuable tool to implement in the Thai English language classroom, since the development of 21st century skills in students is supported and because teachers are assisted in providing language lessons that motivate students to engage in the use of English language and to participate in the lesson.
