The developer of the Kahoot! serious game received the Norwegian Technology Prize 2014

For the first time, the Norwegian technology prize 2014 was given to a single person, Prof. Alf Inge Wang, NTNU. He received the prize for development of  gaming technology. The serious game “Kahoot!”  encourages students to compete on knowledge and is mostly used for secondary and higher education.  According to Teknisk Ukeblad no. 3. 2014, Kahoot! is also in use by companies like Ikea and  Sykehuset i Östfold (a regional hospital in the southeast of Oslo). Currently the game has more than half a million users in 110 countries. This shows the increasing success of SG implementation among different user groups.
