One of my amazing, tech-savvy coworkers presented a workshop about Quizlet at a district in-service last spring, but I did not take the time to try it for myself until recently. This website is a great tool; I could see it being priceless for RtI and Special Education students who need accommodations, as well as any student who wants to know how to better prepare for tests and quizzes. Quizlet allows you to create your own flashcards (which I have used Flash Card Machine to do before). Where Quizlet surpasses other online flash card generators is in its ability to take the flash cards that you create and turn them into practice quizzes and games. It also offers the option to print flash cards. Once the teacher has created a set, he or she can supply students with a URL for direct access; or, you can have students collaborate to create their own cards.
Note: Apparently, Flash Card Machine has added a lot of new features, including printing options, quizzes, and an ipod app.
