When I first heard of quizlet... I was instantly turned off. I don't like the name. QUIZlet? ehh... sounds more like opportunities for testing to me. But then I looked into it. Woah. The things you can do with quizlet!
Read below for a few ways to use quizlet in the classroom!
Teacher Made Study Sets
Do you need students to study flashcards? Practice matching? Quizlet is a tool for you. Search for already created sets made by other teachers, or create your own! You can import via word, excel, google docs, etc, OR make them right on quizlet.
Student Made Study Sets
Do students have a quiz coming up? A big test? Encourage your students to take ownership over their own learning by allowing them to make their own study sets! Students can match terms with definitions or images.
Students have 6 options on how they want to study to learn.
Once they feel like they've mastered their study set, students have two options to play!
Play Quizlet Live
Want to embrace game based learning? Well here is a great start! Quizlet Live engages even the most hesitant students. Not only are students beyond excited to play Quizlet, it encourages healthy competition and productive collaboration!
First, I have students study the chosen study set. You can make your own, study set or search quizlet for a premade set. Studying before playing helps students be prepared for the game, and allows for individual learning. It also helps students that are more likely to get anxious about the game, feel more comfortable and prepared.
Next, students will log into quizlet live using a 6 digit code. They give their name, and wait for the teacher to begin the game.
Once it has begun, students are put into teams. Everyone in each team is given the same question, but only ONE student has the correct answer! It is a race to the finish!
Students have SO MUCH fun! It is collaborative! Competitive! and such a blast!
Disguised learning at its finest,
