How I Use It
I use Quizlet with my Spanish students to drill and practice vocabulary and grammar concepts. Students enjoy the features, all of which are fairly simple and easy for students to figure out. When I can, I will have students use Quizlet as part of an online review session (via laptop cart for the class). I also sometimes send out links to Quizlet sets via Remind 101 (text message reminders--see Remind 101 review for more details). This is great because students and parents can then access the sets from their home devices. My students enjoyed Quizlet so much that they will use it on their own time, have found and downloaded the Quizlet app (all services are FREE!) and will ask me if there is a good Quizlet set for new units. Definitely two thumbs up for this resource!
I like Quizlet. My students enjoy it and will even tell me that they went home and pulled up the site to review. I like that it provides digital flashcards of vocabulary, spelling practice, a typing game, a drag-and-drop game, and a test that can be customized. Quizlet works well in a language classroom because of the repetition of vocabulary and the audio options that allow students to hear the pronunciation. However, it can easily be used in other subjects to practice terms and definitions. Lists are easy to make and can be borrowed and tweaked from other users. The risk of Quizlet is that sometimes there are mistakes in spelling or errors within a "set". Better verification of the content would help, but a teacher can easily scan a list and if changes are needed he/she can copy and edit the set. Overall it is incredibly useful and a great way to have vocab available in a digital way for students.
