If you are a teacher who hasn't yet discovered the power of Quizlet, you are going to want to familiarize yourself before reading the rest of this post.
Quizlet is a powerful tech tool that helps students study terms and concepts with a variety of strategies that are both fun and educational. You can create a digital classroom and assign "sets" of terms for students to study. You can choose a set created by another Quizlet member or you can create your own. Students can then study these terms using flashcards or my students' favorite game - Scatter.
Quizlet Live is explained thoroughly on Quizlet's website, so I'm not going to spend a lot of time explaining the rules. I'll just give you the gist. First, the teacher chooses which set they want to use. Quizlet suggests having at least 12 terms in the set to play. Students sign in on the live website (they can use their phones now, too). Once everyone is signed in, they are sorted into teams. This is quite possibly one of the funniest parts of the game. Once the teacher hits begin, the students have to go find others in their group before they can even start. (Talk about team work practice!) Each team is given a public progress slider projected on the board so each time can see where they stand.
The objective of the game is to correctly define each term that comes up. The challenge is that the answer can be on any of the team members' screens. If a team member incorrectly chooses an answer, the entire team has to start again. It's fun, challenging, educational, and inspires cooperation among students.
My students absolutely loved Quizlet Live. I got really positive feedback from all of my classes after we tried it. They didn't want to stop playing! Try it in your classroom - your students will be talking about it long after the game has ended!
