World History Test Prep from Pearson is designed to act as a review and practice assessment for World History students. World History Test Prep includes 34 World History topics that cover Ancient India and China, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and the Rise of Christianity, Civilizations of the Americas, the Muslim World, the Rise of Europe, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, World War II, and more. Key features of World History Test Prep include review notes, flashcards, and practice quizzes. The review notes provide users with a brief overview of important information related to the topic of study. The flashcards first show users a term that they are to define. Users then tap the flashcard to read the term’s definition before sorting the flashcard into a “know it” or “review it” stack. Flashcards can be sorted and reshuffled at any time, and flashcards include an “Espanol” option for Spanish speakers. The quizzes are multiple choice, and users can review their performance after completing the quiz.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can instruct students to pair up and use the flashcards function of World History Test Prep to review a topic of study. To do so, one student in the pair asks the other student to define a specific term. After the student answers, the first student taps the flashcard to reveal the answer. At this point, the first student then informs the second student if he or she was correct. If the student was correct, the term should be sorted into the “know it” stack. If the student was incorrect, the card should be sorted in the “review it” stack. After 10 terms, the students should switch roles. To conclude the activity, instruct the pairs of students to pick five terms that were challenging and co-write a short essay about the topic that uses the vocabulary words. Students can compose their essays in Pages, Google Docs, or SwiftKey and share them with their teacher and class using Dropbox or Google Docs.
  2. After students get accustomed to the review materials presented at the beginning of each topic, teachers can instruct students to create their own graphic organizer, chart, or other review based on the review materials. Students can use Inkflow, PaperPort Notes, or Popplet to create these learning artifacts.
  3. After using the practice-quiz function of World History Test Prep and reviewing their results, students can use Wunderlist to remind them of the materials and topics that they need to spend more time studying.
  4. Students can be assigned to create a multimedia presentation about a topic included in this app. To do so, teachers first assign students a topic in this app, and then they instruct students to click the “review” tab for their topic. Here, students can read about specific information pertaining to their topic. Next, students are to reorganize the information from being a static document in the app to being a dynamic multimedia presentation. Students can conduct further research for their topic using the Google, Bing, or izik search apps, and they can use Haiku Deck, Educreation, or 30Hands to create their presentations.
