7 smart ways to use Quizlet for virtual learning
- 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.
- Create a class competition with Match — with the top three students with the fastest times earning bragging rights or even some extra credit!
- Ask students to create study sets to support their reading comprehension and vocabulary acquisition in collaborative projects on global issues.
- 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.
- 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.
- Assign activities that include viewing flashcards. Have students complete every activity, take a screenshot of the completed activity, and submit progress via Google Classroom.
