How I Use It
Quizlet is a great flashcard application that allows students to review content. Students can search for flashcards already created to study or make their own. Once flashcards are made, students can share them with others. Teachers can also create and share with students. Quizlet (the app) allows students to learn in different ways: studying the list of terms/definition, studying flashcards that can flip, studying by typing the term (spelling), or studying by matching the term with it's definition while being timed. My students really like the matching game because they like to try to beat their times. This game is very engaging and keeps their interest. The web-based Quizlet provides a few more options for studying.
I think Quizlet is a great tool that provides support for students. Although studying flashcards usually focuses on the lowest levels of Blooms's there are many times when students need to know the basics to move up to the higher levels of Bloom's. Users can keep track of progress and monitor their learning which is great. The free version of quizlet doesn't allow the flashcard creator to add pictures or voice record. The user can upgrade for better features to either a plus account or a teacher account. I do really like the fact that teachers can print flashcards out for those students who may not have access to the internet. Plus it gives you various options for how you want them printed. I do highly recommend this application as it works for K-12 classrooms across the curriculum.
