Instructional Ideas

  1. After teaching a lesson about a specific group of vocabulary words, teachers can have students complete tutorials in this app that align with the lesson taught. Then, if students score less than an 80%, teachers can have students redo the tutorial. To hold students accountable, teachers can require them to send a screen shot of their performance report that is provided at the end of the tutorial.
  2. Once students understand how this app this functions, they can create similar questions using the Quizlet or Quizzam app. Next, they can have a classmate complete their quiz.
  3. Teachers can have students complete tutorials in this app in pairs. When organizing this activity, one student will be responsible for reading the questions and all the answer choices, and the other student will be responsible for answering the question. Students can swap roles after every question, after every three questions, or after each tutorial.
  4. Teachers can create a friendly class competition by seeing which student can successfully complete all the tutorials for a specific language with a score of 90% or higher.
