Great study tool which can be used anywhere!
What an amazing, time-saving resource for teachers to use regardless of their students' ages! I have spent a lot of time over the years creating flash cards to be used in conjunction with study guides for tests and as a quick partner/warm-up activity prior to class across the curriculum.
Quizlet allows you to generate cards quickly, while even searching for an exact definition.
I like that the cards can be customized to your own wording if desired, and you can even assign the cards to be made at home for homework or in the computer lab during one of your computer class days!
I highly recommend the flash cards and the generation process, and the self-quizzing process that allows students to study on their own without the assistance of an adult. There is no excuse not to study their vocabulary terms if their parents or siblings are unable to assist them since the computer can act as an outside party to generate and quiz them on their terminology knowledge!
Tips for using the product
Quizlet is a valuable teacher resource. It has the option to allow you to borrow cards from other teachers as well as share cards with others. You can add images to the cards you generate, create the cards in different languages, and add a voice recording. This allows the teacher to reach different types of learners—the motion, movements of creating and changing the cards, the visuals provided, and audio for those that need or want it. Students can own their education with this application. Quizlet is user friendly and adaptable for different age groups.
