With schools getting data projectors and interactive whiteboards, we’re always on the lookout for interactive, educational and fun activities that can involve the whole class using this great equipment. The longest running and most popular quiz-based gameshow in the world is Jeopardy! And now you can play it with your students in the classroom.  But not only can you play it, you can actually create quizzes for other classes, and even for other schools around the world!

This Jeopardy Gameshow Maker is very easy to use and looks great.  You can even customise the way it looks by creating your own skins for it – a great exercise for learning photo editing.  And each question can include text, and image and even an MP3 audio file if you like.  Podcast Lane has put together a great vodcast on what this program looks like and how it works.  Just press Play below to find out all about it.
