Efficiency value

 

The website and the application are very efficient to use. They allow you to download existing flashcards and quizlets, which offer a lot of options to teachers to upload readymade files.

 

Content value

 

Good content, in a way that you have to have a critical eye on some existing files. Typos and other errors can slip in easily, so definitely mind these flaws. The app can also pronounce what you have typed in various languages, which allows vocabulary practise to be very valuable.

 

Motivational value

 

The motivational value is acceptable, in a way that this way of studying proves itself to be more motivational than browsing through coursebooks. The layouts are not extremely attractive, but can help students to study in an efficient way.

Comments
Every pupil studies in his own way. You can ask them to make an activity or a quizlet, but do not ask them every time, before every test. The making of a quizlet can be time-consuming, make sure they study and not only make a fun exercise or quizlet!

 

Lesson ideas

 

  • Ask your pupils to make a quiz or an exercise to prepare themselves for a test. Do this in class or ask them to do this as a homework activity.

 

  • To differentiate or to remediate this application could be very useful as well. Stronger pupils who have some spare time, can create a quizlet for their fellow pupils to study at home. Or when there is a weaker pupil, ask him to do so for the next lesson, in that way he has seen the subject matter and processed it at home, he will then notice that he will be able to follow the course in a more extensive way, because he has processed the subject matter in advance.

 

Objectives

 

  • Pupils can study vocabulary in an independent way.
  • Pupils can work independently.
  • Pupils can distinguish collocations, word partnerships and chunks in the different quizzes and flashcards they create.
  • Pupils can transfer the exercises into real-life situations.
  • Pupils can create their own exercises concerning vocabulary.
  • Pupils can formulate their biggest difficulties concerning vocabulary.
  • Pupils can consult their subject matter when coming across difficulties.
  • Pupils can spontaneously show their results to the teacher, in order for the teacher to keep track of their progress.
