In the past month, students all over the globe have moved from classrooms to bedrooms, living rooms and anywhere else they can find a place to learn. In the process, the ways students learn have also changed dramatically — and while screen time is up, many of the engaging ways students have interacted with each other have all but disappeared.
Introducing Quizlet Live with a twist — individuals instead of teams. Our team has been hard at work over the past few weeks to make it easy for you to continue to play Quizlet Live with your students when they can’t be physically together. Like many parts of life that have changed during the past few weeks, this new type of Quizlet Live gameplay lets us be alone, together.
Here’s how it works
Create, search for or find your favorite set. Once on the set page, select Quizlet Live (it's free to play!). This works best when all students are connected to each other through Zoom, Google meeting or whatever video conferencing or online classroom technology you use, but you can also play without having your class connected (think sending out the join info through Remind).
After creating a game, select Individuals mode when prompted... Like before, students can join by QR code (encourage them to download the app!) or by entering the 6-digit code on quizlet.live. And we're also going to be adding a way to quickly share a link that you could send out to your students who might be playing without seeing your screen
Unlike Teams mode within Quizlet Live, students will play as individuals and won’t necessarily need to collaborate and communicate with each other — but they still will be rewarded for accuracy over speed. One wrong answer will still send a student back to the start!
At the end of the game, review questions that students missed to reinforce knowledge and recall.
Ready to get play? Individuals mode in Quizlet Live is available today for free for all teachers. To play, you’ll need at least two student players and six terms within a set to get started, but from there, you can make your sets as big as you like and compete with up to 40 students.
