Apstrakt:
Due to a widespread use of technology in the previous period, as well as the fact that the learners mostly belong to generations Alpha and Z, who are technology literate, there is an increasing need to implement ICT tools in the context of teaching foreign languages. Since the attention span of young learners is getting shorter, the teachers are trying to find ways to make lessons livelier and more engaging, which is not that difficult any more due to an abundance of online games at our disposal. One of the most efficient and most often used platforms in modern language teaching is Kahoot!, which is a free game-based learning platform, easy to use in all learning environments. This paper deals with the use of Kahoot! in foreign language teaching with the intention to prove that it affects the classroom dynamics, raises learners’ motivation and contributes to more efficient acquiring of new language content. The comparative survey has been conducted in Radoje Domanović Primary School and Singidunum University, confirming that the impact of games on the learning process and motivation is the same with no regard to the age difference. The results indicate that the proper student engagement and interaction in the classroom increases the learners’ willingness to attend classes and improve their knowledge. What is more, learners should be encouraged to make their own Kahoots! for homework, which could be a challenge and additional motivation in the process of learning foreign languages.
