Quizlet

What is Quizlet?

Quizlet a free website for teachers and students where they can create digital flashcards. Quizlet can automatically generate interactive games and other assessment methods from the original flash card content. Quizlet changes it into 7 different assessment methods!

Make one resource and change it into 7 engaging assessment methods – great differentiation

Activities can be accessed from anywhere on computers, smartphones, tablets. You can even get a printed version. Content can also be embedded into a VLE, thereby giving the learner autonomy on their preferred method of assessment.

Get a teacher account with even more tools. Visit the Website:  https://quizlet.com/for more information.

Quizlet is great for differentiation – all 7 methods of assessment offer a unique experience.  Again, individual, pair, small group and whole groups can be accommodated.  

The matching game has a timer and encourages healthy competition between groups, although it can become rather manic sometimes as students want to better their own score and those of their peers.

Being able to embed into a VLE is great as this allows individual students to interact in or outside of class. 

The teacher subscription also allows you to create a classroom environment so that activities can happen simultaneously within the classroom. It also gives you the opportunity to view the analytics.

I’ve used this technology mostly on an interactive whiteboard so that I can get my students out of their seats and up participating. They love clicking on the whiteboard or being in charge of controlling it.  This tool also helps to generate competition, so its’ great for pair work, small groups etc. 

There are just so many tools to choose from – check out the website for full details.

One of the many tools to create an engaging and interactive learning experience.
