Quizlet Learn - effective learning.

Just a few months ago I was writing about Quizlet Live.  A fantastic tool that encourages classroom collaboration and discussion and further enhances pupil learning of key facts, terms, vocabulary, dates (take your pick, depending on your subject). You can read about it here.  
Recently, I have had the opportunity to try out Quizlet Learn; a new feature that the Quizlet team have worked on with students' progress right at the heart of their creation.  The feature takes on board study and research on how learning occurs most effectively.  Simply set the test date and let the tool create a study programme that is fun and engaging and gives you reminders of what remains to be studied or revisited in order to progress.   The tool provides practice via a variety of quizzes that adapt to the students' progress (or lack of!).  As the student improves so the questions become more taxing getting the student match fit. 


I am a big fan of Quizlet.  Like a good teacher, it is always thinking about how they can improve, what they can do to further the learning of their students.  This new feature, Quizlet Learn, is a response to these questions and taps right into students' needs, thinking about how they can be 'match ready' and well versed in their studies.  I will certainly be encouraging my students to make the most of this tool.
