Tech Around 281 - Student Voice Series: Quizlet Live!

When was the last time your students were pumped to do a vocabulary review? You probably are imagining the groans and moans. Well if you are a student in Shannon Byers 4th grade classroom at Meadow Lake, you would have a slightly different response.

Reviewing language arts vocabulary words were the order of the day and the mood was more like one before a sporting competition. “We’ve got this….oh yea, I’m on the Alpaca’s team...everyone ready to start...GO!

Why was this activity so exciting? All because of a digital feedback tool called “Quizlet Live.”

Quizlet Live is an in-class, team-based learning game. Students work together to correctly match a Quizlet set's terms and definitions. The first team to match 12 in a row wins!

How does it work?

  • Students work together in randomized teams of 3 or 4
  • Teams race to match all the terms and definitions
  • Incorrect answers reset the team's progress to zero
  • The first team to match all 12 terms correctly in a row wins.
  • At the end of a game, teams see what what they matched correctly and incorrectly
