Best of the Old

Screen Shot 2015-11-02 at 10.31.34 AMI have been looking for ways to improve study skills and content enrichment with my 7th grade science class. We have used a lot of technology, but for a recent Geology test, I thought it might be interesting to conduct an activity that was more grounded in traditional study skills. I had used Quizlet years back when studying for graduate level tests and thought that It may be useful for my students. Since then, with implementation of study sets and various practice activities, Quizlet has definitely expanded its offerings. I split my class review time between Quizlet and PollEveryWhere allowing students to have an online study session. I provided URLs for both so that students could access at home easily as well.

They were enforcing traditional study skills, but in a way that was more business as usual in their ever digital lifestyles. It is extremely easy to create a class, study set, and various activities that students can use to study from.
