Empowering teachers to support remote learning
As COVID-19 continues its global spread, Quizlet wants to support teachers in these challenging and uncertain times. We know teachers want to help students learn and make progress even if it’s not possible to be in the classroom, so we’ve compiled resources from our community of teachers. Quizlet is free and your students can create their own accounts. To support teachers, we’re offering an extended free trial of our Quizlet Teacher subscription, with no credit card required, through June 30, 2020.
Sign up, create a class, share study sets with your students and track your students' learning with Class Progress. Check out our recent blog post where you'll find an easy step-by-step guide to set up your teacher account and learn how to use Quizlet to stay connected to students all the while supporting their learning.
Remote learning with Quizlet
Teachers share their strategies for using Quizlet to support remote learning. Check out this webinar to learn more about remote teaching with three Quizlet Teacher Ambassadors.
Ways to use Quizlet remotely
1. Prompt students to create their own sets. Taking ownership of their work will encourage students to study more. Students can then rate each other's sets for peer review.
2. Create a class competition with Match — with the top three students with the fastest times earning bragging rights or even some extra credit!
3. Ask students to create study sets to support their reading comprehension and vocabulary acquisition in collaborative projects on global issues.
4. For ESL courses, have students create their own reading comprehension and/or vocabulary quiz after having read a text provided digitally. These quizzes can then be "traded" with other classmates, and then self administered.
5. Fill in the blanks — if your students need to study long passages or complex concepts (science teachers), create a series of flashcards with words blanked out. Slowly remove more and more words until students know it by heart. Encourage students to practice reading it out loud at home.
6. Math teachers can assign students problems to solve with the answers given on the back of flash cards. Students can then self correct errors if needed.
7. Assign activities that include viewing flashcards. Have students complete every activity, take a screenshot of the completed activity, and submit progress via Google Classroom.
