Presentation summary:

A practical hands-on work-shop showing attendees the methods for making quizzes to encourage independent vocabulary practice with students. It is a low tech strategy and thus is suitable for teachers who are looking for an entry level / beginner use of technology in the classroom. It is also very suitable for teachers who need to cover specific vocabulary and would like to take students to a lab for independent learning, but have little available time online.
