The 5 Steps of Flashcard Factory
1. Create a New Vocabulary List
Log into Pear Deck as a teacher. When you reach Pear Deck Home, click Start a Vocab List:
2. Add Vocabulary Terms
Find a Vocabulary List by Subject, paste in your own list, or type in terms. Merriam-Webster is on call to help you fill in definitions as you go. You can choose whether or not to give students a definition.
3. Play the Flashcard Factory Game
Flashcard Factory is most fun when you project the game at the front of the room. It's not technically necessary though, so if you don't have a projector, no worries.
When you click Play Flashcard Factory, we will display instructions on your View (the Projector View) telling students how to join the game. Students go to joinpd.com, log in with their Google Account, then enter the code displayed on the Projector View.
Once they have joined the session, you can click Clock in. Students will be split into teams in order to create example sentences and illustrations for the new terms. As a class, you can review the cards on the Projector View and choose the best examples to be included in the final Flashcard Set.
4. Ship your Flashcard Set
After completing Quality Control and selecting the final examples to be included in your Flashcard Set, you can Export to Quizlet. You don't even need your own Quizlet account!
5. Share and Review
Share the link with students so they can review the terms with any of Quizlet's fun study games.
