Quizlet: Online Flashcards

  • Learn: you are prompted with the term or definition and then are prompted to define the other term or definition
  • Speller: allows you to type what you hear to practice spelling
  • Test: allows you to make simple tests out of flashcards
  • Scatter/Microscatter: matching game out of flashcards

Quizlet also has resources for teachers.  You can make classes, print PDFs of flashcard sets, collaborate in groups, and more.  There is also a Quizlet teaching page for more ideas in subjects of Foreign Language, English, Science, Social Studies, and Math.
