Quizlet – flashcard creator & activities

Home Screen

Quizlet is a great way to memorize vocabulary lists. Supplement your lessons, and extend the days learning to the home computer.  Wow…flashcards, but much more fun and interactive.

Quizlet founder, Andrew Sutherland, has announced recent improvements to the Quizlet website.

Like the flashcards I grew up with, this flashcard program allows  the teacher to a create unique tool to support the classroom lessons.

Teachers need to create an account before creating flashcards, and you can sign up through Facebook. Easy!

I found that it was easy to search for flash cards that supported my lessons first, before creating ones of my own.  I created a folder in “My favorites” titled Quizlet, and added to my favorites the links.  Then exported that folder to my classroom laptops.

For my first set I would navagate to the Quizlet dashboard, (my dashboard), click on the link next to Sets, Create one.

A new page opens and your ready to fill in the blanks to create your classroom flashcards.  Title, subject and description, and allow everyone to see the cards was easy.  The terms and descriptions I had on my word documents.  From Word I cut and pasted each card to the cells.    Add a row feature in the bottom left of the screen allows more cards.  I first used this application for States and Capitals.   I found the students loved playing with Quizlet, and oh yeah, they were learning at the same time.  Parents noted that their child enjoyed the online practice and at home, and several noted how well their student did on the final test.  Parents have told me what a huge difference this practice has made for their child.  And for some it made studying the states and capitals a lot easier.
