Like many of you, I use Quizlet as a source of basic training for newly learned concepts and repeated review of foundational procedures. You know, “skill practice”. However, I have recently discovered Quizlet Live as a way to further use my flashcards to engage every student in an efficient and effective classroom conversation. Plus, it’s fun!
It works like this: You create your flashcard set on Quizlet. Then, you choose: Live.
Your live session will now be started and you will be given a code to share with students:
One by one, the students register to play. Once the whole class has signed in, the program randomly assigns students to a team.
Students then compete as a team to match each description with a given concept (you have set up your flashcards). The correct answer is only on one of their screens, which means they have to work together and engage in conversation to find the right solution.
Depending on the difficulty of your flashcard set, this process can take between five and 30 minutes. I have used this program to review concepts from a homework, diagnose previous knowledge and, as an exit ticket, to see how much the students had retained from a lesson.
Sometimes, we need an efficient tech tool to make the learning in our classrooms more effective, and Quizlet Live does just that.
