Abstract


In the framework of the subject “Analysis of aeronautical structural components” included in the Master of Science of Aeronautical Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de València, the application Kahoot! is employed in order to review the technical content and obtain feedback of the level of knowledge acquired by the students. Kahoot! allows developing multiple choice interactive quizzes that are solved in the classroom.

Using this type of tools enhances the attention of the students and helps to create interesting discussions making the students be part of the teaching-learning process. Besides, the platform allows analyzing the results of the technical content reviewed which, in turn, permits the lecturer to adapt the didactic material to a real scenario. Furthermore, the results obtained from the assessment survey show the high level of satisfaction of the students with an activity which allows them to learn in a fun way. In conclusion, the application of Kahoot! for content review helps to perfect the teaching-learning process and improves academic performance in an attractive and engaging environment.
