Although many of you may know some of these useful, more fun ways to teach your students the materials of a unit, some are simply oblivious. Kahoot, Quizlet, and Socrative are all helpful study tools that you can recommend to your students for a better study experience.

Kahoot!

Kahoot is a wonderful game based study guide that the whole class participates in. Not only does Kahoot offer a better, more exciting way to study, it also offers more participation in the classroom.

Short Synopsis:

You (the teacher) would create an account on Kahoot, and the create your own “quiz”  in which there would be four multiple choice answers. You would project the game on the white board, (the main lobby of the game after you have activated it), and then your students would then go to the website on their ipads, type in the projected game code, give themselves a name, and then participate in the game! Each correct answer offers a certain amount of points.

Socrative

Socrative is another, more formal version on Kahoot. You as the teacher has an opportunity to create a more strict and in depth study session, by creating a ther form of a test game that the students can use to study. “Socrative lets teachers engage and assess their students with educational activities on tablets, laptops and smartphones. Through the use of real time questioning, instant result aggregation and visualization, teachers can gauge the whole class’ current level of understanding. Socrative saves teachers time so the class can further collaborate, discuss, extend and grow as a community of learners.”

Quizlet

Quizlet is a well known website that may students use either on their own, or with their teachers. Quizlet is an online note card website where the teacher (or student) can create a set of vocabulary or terms that the students need to remember. There are different forms of games they can play with those terms, or just study them  flash cards. It is also free (to an extent), which makes this a more open option.
