How I Use It
I have used Quizlet in the classroom several times. It is great to help students learn vocabulary or get some basic understanding of concepts. I love the live feature because it gives the students the fun they love from Kahoot with competition and motivates them to learn. But Quizlet should not just be used by itself. There is only so much a student can learn from vocabulary or general concepts, but it is an excellent way to practice for vocabulary tests.
My Take
My overall opinion of Quizlet as a teaching tool is it is great to get students engaged in a topic but cannot be used without teachers explaining the concepts further. Students often have difficulty understanding some technical terms, so having them practice the word and its meaning on Quizlet is excellent. But the student cannot always know the basics to do well, so it is a great support tool, but not the best tool for the student to use.
