Unlock the Power of Gamified Education – Family Feud-Inspired Quiz Game

March 19, 2024

Education has come a long way from pen and paper. Now, there are more methods for learning than ever before. And, perhaps more importantly, we understand how people learn. Though paper or notebooks and pens will always be one of the greatest options for the learning process, interactive games are now at the forefront of tech and education.

Educational games, where children can physically take part, including teamwork, can improve the learning process. Studies show that the gamification of education has positively impacted knowledge retention and recall, too.

Let's examine how the traditional learning landscape has evolved and how interactive gamification can be included with Quizado!


The Pen and Paper Pop Quiz

Exams and pop quizzes have long been the standard. Students study through books and hope they get the correct answer when quiz day comes around. It helps teachers gauge how the learning is going and highlights to the student where improvements can be made.

These types of quizzes require a lot of manual work from teachers; with the introduction of gamification, the results are automatically generated. The student and the teacher can both see the results immediately.

Why use quizzes in education?

Quizzes are one of the most effective methods for quickly determining how much information a student can recall. In all aspects of education, a test of some sort is delivered to pass the course. What are the proven benefits of using quizzes in the learning process?

  • The efficiency of the study is improved after taking a quiz. Both the teacher and the student can see where there is room for improvement.
  • Quizzes reduce some students' anxiety when they hear the word 'test' or 'exam.' Doing smaller quizzes prepares them for the process in a gentler way.
  • Research suggests that quizzes presented during long lectures or book learning increase the students' engagement (this is across multiple ages).
  • The retrieval practice is improved the more it is used. Quizzes are the ideal way to help make information be quickly recalled.
  • Quizzes add an element of fun to the learning process and can be built into lesson plans.
  • Key concepts of learning can be toplined and distilled into quickly recalled facts through the use of games for students.
  • Interactive activities are shown to add a big element of fun to the learning process, and students who have positive associations with learning have higher grade averages.
  • Quizzes in the classroom encourage friendly competition and teamwork - both skills that can be used later in life in a work environment. Offering a solid foundation for social skills, communication skills, and critical thinking in groups.
  • Individual progress can be tracked and monitored in real time.
  • Listening skills, comprehension skills, and engagement levels are increased - after all, they need to listen, read, and react!

Brown, Roediger, and McDaniel (2014) found that one of the most impactful ways to secure material in the mind is by using short-term quizzes like Quizado. The recall of the knowledge is called 'retrieval practice.' Here is what they said:

Neural pathways get stronger when memory is retrieved rather than reading off of a page -- exercises memory; strengthens retrieval routes.


How can you introduce interactive quizzes to the classroom?

The fastest way to introduce quizzes into the classroom is by using a quick and easy app like Quizado.

It can be used in multiple ways to keep students engaged in small groups or as individuals. For most younger children, quizzes don't feel like studying, so they are ideal for knowledge assessment.
