Quizlet is a free website providing learning tools for students, including flashcards, study and game modes. It was created by high school sophomore Andrew Sutherland in 2005 and now contains over 40 million study sets. All of the material is user-generated.
I don't know about ya'll but I love using Quizlet in the classroom to practice vocabulary and terms from the unit. The kids like it because they are online playing different games like that reinforce the terms. Here are a few of them:
Flashcards—Review your material, shuffle/randomize, or listen with audio.
Learn—Track your correct/incorrect answers and retest the ones you've missed.
Speller--Type what you hear in this audio-powered study mode.
Test—Randomly generate tests based on your flashcard set.
Scatter—Race against the clock to drag and match terms/definitions.
Space Race—Type in the answer as terms/definitions scroll across the screen.
I think quite a few of the teachers at BHHS are currently using Quizlet in their classroom or have shown the students how to get the APP on their phones so they can make their own terms to study. Well, Quizlet has something new that is outstanding! Its called LIVE, an in-class, team-based learning game based on any Quizlet study set. Students are randomly paired into teams of 3-4 students to race against other teams. Each team must work together to clear their board, and the first team to do so wins.
How does the game work?Here is what to expect:
1) Set up your computer to project your screen to the class
2) Give each student a computer or tablet
3) On your computer, go to the set you’d like to use on Quizlet
4) You’ll see a “Live” button on the right side of the page with a “beta” label. Click it!
5) On this screen, click "Create game."
1) Students go to http://quizlet.live and enter the game pin you are projecting on your screen (if you cannot access quizlet.live due to school filters, you can access it via https://quizlet.com/live)
2) When all students have joined, preview randomized team assignments (with the option to reshuffle)
3) Assign these teams to students by clicking Use These Teams
4) Ask students to move next to each other so that they can work together
5) Start the game!
