Quizlet

Image Create online flash cards that can do so much more than the traditional card stock version on Quizlet. It’s FREE and in my opinion very fun to use!!

Quizlet was founded in 2005 by 15-year-old Andrew Sutherland for a high-school French class. He wanted an easy-to-use tool for learning vocabulary. He built Quizlet for himself, shared it with his friends, and it grew from there.

Quizlet is now among the largest educational website in the world. Millions of teachers and students from every country in the world use Quizlet.

You can create your own list of terms or pick from an already created list. You can search for a class list that has been created by your teacher or someone in your  class or you can create and share a list with your class. You can insert images for picture ID for animals, plants, countries, etc. There is a very nice and clear computer narration option that reads the cards out loud during the review process.

Check out the one that I created for my class assignment entitled DANGER!! Watch out for these critters!! The one issue that I found with the cards is that I typed a lot of information about the critters and plants on the back side of the card. When it came time for the review portion for the flashcards (scatter, race, and test) in order to get each one correct, you had to type in everything that I had written. I’m sure there is a way that this can be corrected if you spend some time with it. I didn’t mind it myself, since it was for demonstration purposes.
