Description: This passage is mainly about quizlet login. In this passage, the writer goes over five things that we can do with Quizlet, although we don’t know the five things, they can help a teacher to make the learning interactive and fun.
This is episode one of the e-learning podcast, my name is Shannon Gunn and today I’m going to go over five things that you don’t know and that you can do with Quizlet, now if you’re not familiar with Quizlet, it’s found at quizlet.com and you can log in and create sets of all of your vocabulary words.
So this is going to take you beyond the typical creating sets and using them for study purposes on the Quizlet app or the Quizlet website, this is going to go beyond that and teach you some cool things that you can do as a teacher to make your learning interactive and fun, so the first thing is to embed your flashcards into your websites.
This is relatively simple and effective for teaching vocabulary, you can flick through these cards as a way to review material as class begins, the font is huge so it works well on a projected screen, and then when you turn the audio blog, the students typically hush up and want to listen to it, because they remember it better when they hear it.
So all of this is found on my website which is e learning pod wordpress.com, and you’re seeing a screenshot of going to that website, so if you want to see how to do this, go to the website elearning pod wordpress.com, so you copy and paste the embed code, so that is the first thing.
The second thing that you can do is to copy and paste sets and then combine them together, so one of the great things about Quizlet is the ability to combine and copy sets, here’s how I use this as I’m teaching, I create a mini set or whatever how many new words for each day’s worth of material, then I take all those mini sets and I combine them together for the final test set.
Then I can combine all the final test sets together for the final exam set, so there will be a lot of words, I’m sure that it is overwhelming but you can always pare down and add to them from there, in addition, the one thing that I have done is after I teach each part, I will go through and pull ten words that are the most important from each unit or each Quizlet section.
Then add those all together to create the final exam set, and then I even do this thing where I will pull the ten questions from the each module and create a quiz from those ten questions, and combine all those quizzes together to create my final exam, and that’s what I have done for music tech, I think I have five units that I have taught.
So I have combined the sets together for the final exam, each set will have ten questions and each page has ten questions either multiple-choice or matching, and I put it into word and I have to adjust a little bit and add the numbers and so on and so forth, that’s how you do that, so you can also copy and combine from other people.
If you search Quizlet at the top for other people’s sets and they have copying enabled, then you can copy that and then you can also take multiples of your own sets, so I’ll go to that, you can take multiples of your own sets and combine them together, so the screenshot that you’re seeing is that if you go to my website, you can see that I have combined the bonds.
I do a set on bonds with a set on types of stock markets and savings versus investing, so there are 79 terms, then you create a set from that and you can print all that out or to all the other activities with that as well, but I’m going to go over, so that’s the second one.
The third one is that you can use Quizlet for exam question review, this is interesting, it’s a different way of using Quizlet from what it is designed for, and it works well, because as I have said, you can utilize it as exam review by projecting it on the screen, so what you do is that you put the question such as a review question with multiple choices, such as A B C and D into the either the right or the left side.
Then you put the answer on the other side, so you can have all of the questions on the right and all of the answers on the left, then if you look at flashcards, it’ll come up as question on one side of the flashcard and then answer on the other side of the flashcard, then you can project that on the screen and it has a huge font.
So everybody can read it, you can also have it to be read aloud to the students, you don’t have to read it aloud and they can guess it as you go through, so it’s a great way to review with exam questions, the only thing is that you have to take the time to put all those questions in, but a lot of people have already done that for certain tests that are universal.
The fourth idea is to create a memory game from the Quizlet words, this is cool, go to the dollar store and buy a pack of business cards, you can get them there for a dollar, for a pack of 20 pages in there and then you can print the Quizlet set on the back of the business cards, so on one side, it is a design or color, and then on the other side, it is the word with the corresponding definition.
Each set will have five pages, each page has five words on it with the way that it’s designed, so you have students pair up and then give each pair one page worth of words or two pages if you want to have ten words, and then they can pop them out, because usually they come pre-cut, you have to pop them out and throw away the extra pieces and then play memory.
The way that you play the memory game is that you have the sets, you put the cards facedown or put the terms and definitions down, so you can’t see them in two rows of five, or if you have ten terms, you can put four rows of five and then you have one player flip over to terms, and if they match, then they get to keep it.
If they don’t match, they have to flip them back over in the same location, then the second player will flip over to terms, and if they match, they get to keep it, if they don’t match, you flip them back over in the same location, so that’s an awesome thing, my students are overwhelmed with 77 words.
I have them break down into five words at a time for the review memory game, and they seem to like it a lot, so they are appreciative, and then the last idea is this thing called the Quizlet carousel game, I take this from an adaptation and some training that I have got for teaching English language learners.
I print out the Quizlet set on the small strips view and you can see a demonstration of this, then I cut all the strips out and I only keep the definitions, I don’t keep the terms, I only keep the definitions, then I give each student a strip with a definition, they each get their own definition strip.
Then you put them into two circles, one is an inner circle and the other one’s an outer circle, and you have to split the class into and put them into two circles, and each person has a partner, and you have the outer circle read their definition and then the inner circle has to try to guess what the term is.
Then you have the person on the inner circle read the definition and have a person on the outer circle try to guess the term, once both inner and outer have gone, then you announce the class that everybody takes your terms and passes them down one to the left, so the terms make their way around the circle, kids are talking it, it gets noisy and it’s very productive.
The kids like it because they’re interacting with each other and it helps them remember, because they have to pull from memory what the word is, and if they don’t know it, then a lot of times the person on the other side is helpful and will give them some hint, so I think that this is very cool, I want to share it with people.
Thank you for reading, please subscribe to my channel if you want to see more tips and tricks on alerting and utilizing the Internet, I will have more stuff on that but I want to start out with this, because I think that it’s very helpful and I think that it can be applicable to any situation that you have to learn a lot of vocabulary, whether you’re teaching or in the corporate setting.
So this is a part of my project for one of my classes for graduate school in e-learning design, I’m very excited to hopefully share this with a lot of people to generate new ideas on how to use Quizlet, it’s an amazing platform and it has made learning much easier in so many ways for my students.
It’s made things easier for me to generate quick mini quizzes and so on, so I highly recommend it and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or you can leave a comment, it’s best to go to the website and leave a comment, the website is e-learning pod dot wordpress.com, thanks for reading and check back soon for the next episode of the e-learning podcast, bye.
