Quizlet – for vocabulary reinforcement in the classroom.

WHAT IS IT?

What is Quizlet? It all starts with flash cards. Pupils can make their own, or choose from millions of flash cards sets created by others.

But that’s just the beginning – once you’ve got flashcards, you can use several study modes including multiple choice tests and study games. You can add images and listen to audio, and even study on the go with one of dozens of Quizlet-compatible mobile apps.

Pupils are the core of Quizlet. High school and college students, language learners, school students, anyone studying anything. Quizlet makes it easy to create and share study materials, to study with a few friends or an entire class. And Quizlet is good for studying almost any subject, from languages and vocabulary to history to science and the arts.

HOW CAN TEACHERS USE IT?

Not only can students use Quizlet on their own time, but there’s also an option for teachers to create flashcard sets for specific classes and follow kids’ progress within the site. It could make a fun addition to self-guided classroom study; if a school offers the use of computers or iPads, teachers could easily work Quizlet into a class lesson. Students might enjoy Quizlet competitions, making use of the games “Scatter” and “Space Race.” Teachers could also create other interactive in-class activities or assign students Quizlet study as homework. As your students learn new information push them to move towards higher order thinking, using what they know to apply, analyze, question, and create.

PEDAGOGY

Is learning content seamlessly baked-in, and do kids build conceptual understanding? Is the product adaptable and empowering? Will skills transfer? There are six “study modes” — the ability to create their own flashcards helps kids take ownership over their learning. While it won’t engage kids’ higher-order thinking, it can be an effective way to learn facts.

Summary
A good website and resource to help students take control of their own learning. It might not stretch the students depth of understanding but it is great for revision and fact learning.
