Study Stack Flash Cards

I wonder if you have come across Study Stack yet. The site features collections of Flash Card materials that are organised into categories of Geography History, Business, Maths, Miscellaneous, Science, Languages, Agriculture, Law, Medical and Standardized Tests, that you can both use and contribute to. There are in fact even a number of ways in which your chosen Flash Card resource can be displayed, and these include :-
Flashcards, Study Stack, Study Table, Matching, Crossword, Unscramble, Type In, Quiz Test, Hangman, Bug Match, Hungry Bug, Targets, Notes, Apps, Print, Edit, Hmm...
Some of these, such as Hangman, Bug Match, Hungry Bug and Targets, have a definite game feel about them which was nice.

I was particularly encouraged by the inclusion of Apps in the list as it will allow you to make the resources available to smartphone, tablet, or laptops mobile technologies, and lets face it most students in my experience here at college these days are more than likely going to be carrying at least on of these around with them.


I was further impressed to find that having selected the Flash Card subject and type, there is a text field of copy-n-paste code that you can drop into your web app or vle, which is in fact exactly what I did.


You will see from the screen shot here that as I had simply dropped the code into a web page Resource and emailed everyone to have a try and feedback to me, I did feel the need to include something by way of brief instructions on use at the top.

If you are into the Flash Card approach then I can recommend this site, it is very easy to use there are plenty of resources to choose from.

Just posted a link to this on my Web2 tools scoopit site - http://www.scoop.it/t/learning-2-0-tools
Made some today for Science teacher and embedded in Page view in Moodle. Worked really well for most part and the Target game is brilliant.
