Quizlet has been a tool used in our classrooms for a number of years that helps students learn and practice vocabulary and content in a fun way. Quizlet.com is loaded with decks of flashcards students can use to review vocabulary and concepts. Teachers and students also have the option to create their own decks. Decks can be linked and embedded into Schoology, our Learning Management System. Recently, Quizlet Live launched and it takes the basic studying tool to a whole new level. The developers have made Quizlet into a group collaborative game that is very interactive and engaging.

Quizlet was developed in 2005 by a high school sophomore, Andrew Sutherland, who was studying for a French vocabulary test. He knew how to code and developed the program which he then shared with his friends. Sutherland eventually left MIT to develop and start the Quizlet company (learn more). Quizlet is now used by over 20 millions students per month!
