What if students could create flashcards as a CLASS, keeping only the best ones to use for practice?
Oh, and what if they added their own IMAGES to those flashcards?
That’s at the heart of Flashcard Factory by Pear Deck, a neat FREE tool to let students “crowdsource” the flashcards they’ll use to study.
Check out this tutorial video, which walks you through the steps …
