DK Partners with Kahoot!
Global publisher DK joins forces with multi-award winning international learning platform Kahoot! to improve digital learning.
Working directly with educators around the world, DK knows first-hand how learning has changed in the past 18 months, and has seen teachers shift towards embracing online learning post-COVID. The publisher has received feedback from teachers wanting bespoke DK Kahoots (learning games) to improve their students’ learning experience, and is thrilled to have formed this strategic partnership.
This was echoed by Hilary Fine, DK’s Education Development Director, who shared: “I am delighted that DK is partnering with Kahoot! We are renowned for our dynamic, inspiring and engaging educational content and have created the Kahoot! quizzes to further support the learner experience. We are launching the DK Kahoot! profile with quizzes to accompany our highly successful English for Everyone language learning course, and look forward to adding many more collections based on popular DK books in the future.”
Craig Narveson, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Kahoot!, added,“At Kahoot!, we want to empower everyone to unlock their deepest learning potential, and we know that English skills can be key in unlocking new opportunities to learn, connect and explore. Language skills are so valuable in our connected world, so we’re happy to be partnering with DK to bring the playful experience of Kahoot! to English learners of all ages.”
In the last 12 months, 300 million games have been played on the Kahoot! platform, with 1.9 billion participating players in more than 200 countries. The Kahoot! learning platform makes it easy for any individual or corporation to create, share, and play learning games that drive compelling engagement.
The two companies are passionate about education and improving learning. Together they are working to unlock individuals’ full learning potential and inspire curiosity using DK content to make a better learning experience for all.
This important partnership reinforces the publisher’s wider educational content strategy to reach more readers and to support and enhance educational development by making DK’s content more readily available online and in all formats.
