Quizlet: supporting you online
This webinar is a continuation of the Tuesday workshop.
These days, we’re all learning to adapt our methods and materials to new online formats, and Quizlet, an online flashcard programme, can be one of the tools in our toolbox. I use it to teach grammar, writing skills, pronunciation, vocabulary and cultural studies, to make and play classroom games, to pre-teach, teach and revise, and to provide students with glossaries, timelines and other material online and in print. I encourage my students to make their own sets and I learn stuff myself with it.
In the first webinar, we’ll explore the basics. We’ll look at Quizlet “sets” online that you can rework, as well as how to create and customize your own sets. Quizlet offers various games that your students can play at home with learning material, but the basic flashcard setup also allows plenty of meaningful practice.
I hope the session will encourage you to give the programme a try or to try new things out with it.
Taking a look at quizlet.com before the workshop and signing up to it (there is free Teacher access for the next couple of months) would also be useful but is not a requirement. If you do sign up, I have set up a MELTA class you can join beforehand, where you can explore some of the different types of sets you can make:

This is an event where Melta members & friends (also welcome) get together, flex their creative muscles and share some of their favourite activities. It's also a wonderful opportunity to experiment and try out new activities you may have felt unsure about using
in the classroom.
So, we're keeping our fingers crossed and hoping it can take off! See you there!
Snacks & beverages will be provided as usual.
