Cram app

cram appCram has been an instant success with my year 9s and my year 10s. It has also endeared itself to me because it is so easy to use. I put the Cram app on my iPad last night and could quickly and easily make up a set of flashcards which supported what I was teaching in class today. There is also an app for android so I can use it on my phone to create sets of useful cards. The two games are very effective because the students have to know the work before they can play the games. They cannot just play those games. It was interesting to see some of them try to play the games before they had studied the lists but it was all in a day’s work and good fun. The students go to the lists and memorise them easily and they love the games which really reinforce their knowledge. For me, it is a great site because I can access it from any device now and can put together a set of effective learning cards in 10 minutes. It really has been a helpful site. My lists are shared publicly so anyone can use them and I have yet to look for the lists I could use. Great way to share resources. I  put the link up on the LMS and then the students then access it on their iPads or their MacBooks. The site works just as effectively on both.

Cool Cram flashcards

I went to Cram to have a look at the site, signed in with my Google ID and in 5 minutes had a flashcard set with two cool game options as part of the learning. Could not believe how cram flashcard gameeasy that was and how much fun. Cram has 108 million flash cards at the moment divided into logical learning areas. The more people add to it, the more choices we shall have. There is a premium version of Cram if you are interested. I am not a big flash card user but I have looked for a long time for a site where I could just make some sets of vocab cards. Repetition is how we memorise and so, with technology, we have to find different ways to get the repetition going. The two games which are part of the learning activities are a nice bonus.

Do you like flash cards?

study blue I don’t really need to say a lot about Study Blue. It is extremely well designed, has a section for teachers and explains the possibilities for learning very well. If you like flash cards and your students like flash cards then this is a great site for online collaboration which makes excellent use of mobile technology as well. Teachers and students can make sets of flashcards to learn something and then share them online. To have access to a global bank of study aids is a fantastic idea.

Anki flashcards for anything!

Anki is a flashcard programme but if you read the documentation and look at the screenshots, you’ll see it is more than that really. It operates on Windows, Apple and Linux and there is a mobile version too. It is incredibly well thought out because it keeps a check of what you have been learning, can be synchronised to different devices and will batch the work into manageable learning portions. It is very easy to operate and has some learning sets which you can down load to see how it works. There is plenty of material for Japanese, French and then you can even programme it for maths equations. You customise it to your own needs so it is more complex than your average flash card programme. Very handy! It is well worth learning how to use it properly because it gives you some real learning flexibility.
