Quizlet eats flashcards for breakfast!

April 8, 2009

Cool flashcards website.The founder of quizlet is the high school student Andrew Sutherland.

My mission for Quizlet is to make learning vocabulary not a chore. I know a lot of teachers assign vocabulary to students, but few students actually “absorb” words into their vocabularies after they take their test. Which kind of defeats the purpose, right? So Quizlet is my response – it aims to make learning fun, thus make learning effective. At the very least, it can help students do better on quizzes and tests even if they don’t fully “absorb” their words.

    Memorize.com is a similar site. It has a free-form page format, so you can add headings and paragraphs to break up long lists into smaller groups, and explain and add context.
