If you are looking for a great, interactive study tool that can reinforce basic concepts, both in and out of the classroom, Quizlet may be just the tool. Quizlet is a gamification technology-based study tool that students can use anyplace, anytime. Quizlet engages all types of learners, and its multi-language capability makes it the perfect study companion for ESL students.
Don’t have computers in your classroom? No problem! Quizlet provides six types of PDF printing formats (tables, glossary, small or large flashcard sheets and index cards), which lets you turn any Quizlet into a paper/pencil activity. You can even embed a Quizlet QR Code in your handouts, so that students can access the activity later from their smart phone, or tablet. Quizlet’s free IOS and Android mobile apps allow students to connect from anywhere, on any device, 24/7.
Best of all, Quizlet’s basic application is free. The free version allows for the creation of study tools; including flashcards, learning activities, practice tests and games. For instructors, Quizlet requires very little set up time, yet the adaptive learning technology provides students with hours of practice. Quizlet is also easy to share. Simply embed the Quizlet URL or QR Code into your learning management system.
Getting started with Quizlet is as simple as 1-2-3. First, create an account using your email, Facebook log on or Google account. Second, create a learning set or import existing information from any Word, Excel or Google Docs file. Third, establish your permissions and privacy settings, then your Quizlet is ready to use.
Don’t have time to create a Quizlet? Then assign this task to your students. Simply set up a class or groups, then give student participant’s permission to create or edit a Quizlet.
If you are looking to track student progress, or enhance a Quizlet with images or audio, then you can upgrade to the paid version of Quizlet for a slight fee. The paid version also allows you to use Quizlet Live, which is an enhanced, collaborative learning tool.
