Our Newest Education Widget: Quizlet

We’re excited to announce Quizlet as the newest addition to our Education Widget gallery. Quizlet is the #3 app in the Education section of the app store, and there’s definitely a reason why. It’s simple, sleek, and lets you turn what you’re learning in the classroom into fun study materials, quizzes, and games. You can also browse a large selection of material already developed by fellow educators and students and incorporate that into your learning.

To embed any or all of your Quizlet learning sets into your wiki, edit your wiki page and go to the “Widget” tool. In the “Education” category, go to “Quizlet.” From there you can either log into your Quizlet account to pull up your material or search across peer-generated content in your subject or interest area. Once you’ve chosen your set, you can embed it in one of four study modes:

Scatter – Match words to their definitions. Beat your own time or race against your friends.
Learn – Answer the questions, track your progress, and review the things you got wrong.
Flashcards – The tried and true, this time in digital format.
Speller – Type in what you hear. It works in 18 different languages.

Save your embed, save the page, and let the fun begin.

If you haven’t yet tried Quizlet, do. We think you’ll love it. In fact, if we weren’t busy working on Wikispaces, we might spend all day using Quizlet to quiz each other on our old high school geography.

    Does quizlet allow for constructed questions? By this, I mean can formulas be used to create similar questions for students with different numbers?

    Gadget doesn’t work. When I click on the option for Quizlet, nothing appears.

    Esta herramienta pedagógica, está sintonizada con las exigencias del siglo XXI, donde el estudiantado se le dan los espacios para que desarrrolle sus competencias de investigar, socializar e inferir.
