I started this week by sharing my favorite alternative to Quizlet. To end the school week, I have a new type of flashcard to share with you as an alternative to Quizlet. This new type of flashcard is called Flexible Maps by freaked out.
Flex cards are multimedia memory cards that can have up to ten sides. You can display videos, images, links and text on your Flexcards. For example, in this demo you’ll see that the Flexcards for ten countries around the world include the capital of those countries, maps of each, images of the flags for each, YouTube videos of the countries, brief summaries of each, and links to additional information.
In this new video I show how to create your own Flexcards using the Google Sheets template provided by Flippity.
Regular double-sided flashcards are great for practicing recalling definitions or math facts. Flex cards are something students should try when they need to study a little more than just definitions or simple facts.
