EDISCIO -This is a great free “collaborative flashcard tool.” What makes this so great is the ability to create teacher and student accounts. The teacher accounts can create classes and allow teachers to invite people to use the flashcards. You can “schedule your learning” (meaning that it will prompt you to learn by schedule…so many cards per day) and you can see the stats associated with any review session. As a creator of a “cardbox” of flashcards you can adjust the following options: a) is it public/private? b) use only by invitation? c) who can invite people? d) who can edit cards? e) who can add cards
QUIZLET – Two things make this free flashcard service special: 1) they have a test creator which would be great for students who need the extra practice and 2) this site is testing out a voice recognition module in addition to games and the ability to edit who is able to see and edit the cards which would be great for special education students with modifications or maybe just auditory learners. On a side note, the Space Race game is really fun
STUDYSTACK -This is another free flashcard service that does what many of the other services do (allows you to share, create, edit, play games, etc…) BUT this service allows you to send the cards you created to your phone (including iPhone), PDA, or iPod. Games it includes are hangman, bug match, targets, scramble, and it creates crossword puzzles.
FUNNELBRAIN -This is another online flashcard program that performs many of the same functions as the other programs but also has its own special features. Two really neat features include a wide variety of already created AP study cards (all different subjects) and it’s easy to create and join groups.
