How I Use It
I have used Quizlet to help students gain understanding of new vocabulary as we are working through content. I create the Quizlets with words that I choose, either typing in my own definitions or utilizing some of the great definitions already available as provided by other users. I then embed the Quizlet onto my LMS platform so that my students can access the Quizlet and interact with the new terms using the various modes of study.
I like this tool because it gets away from having students look up words and write down definitions. Students can interact with the new terms in a variety of ways, including playing games with them, using the flash card function, and even taking a test on the terms through the Quizlet. By playing with the vocabulary in multiple ways it helps students with their depth of knowledge and comfort in using the new vocabulary. I also like that the app will read the term aloud to the students so that they also know how to pronounce it. Great option for visually impaired students.
