Quizlet - New Game


Quizlet is beta testing a new game feature called Quizlet Live. For those unfamiliar with quizlet it is a free website that allows you to create word decks that you can turn into flashcards and then play with them in various game modes. You can search for existing word decks or create your own.

Quizlet Live (their newest game) is an in-class, team-based learning game based on any Quizlet study set. Students are randomly paired into teams of 3-4 students to race against other teams. Each team must work together to clear their boards, but wrong answers reset progress to zero. the first team to match all 12 terms correctly in a row wins.

I have used this in several classrooms and different training environments and everyone (students and teachers) have enjoyed the group gaming element and folks get really competitive. 

Since it is in beta testing mode you have to request access by emailing - beta@quizlet.com. You need to indicate what your quizlet username is so they can give you access.

My only suggestion is I wish you could adjust the number of terms. I used a 5th grade WWII set I had created with 24 words but only 12 terms were used during the game. It would have been nice to use the whole set.

My HS friend was showing me how she uses this in her class -- it is so cool!! She said that she doesn't allow the teams to sit together and her class gets crazy fun and loud :)
