In the Chapter four link I incorporated a flashcard system using Google Docs. The positives of using Google flashcards is that it is very user friendly. Individuals will only need to use a spreadsheet to type in the concepts they would like to be quizzed upon. Once individuals have completed the task of typing in the information they will just need to highlight the information and click on insert gadgets. The computer will pull up a screen with the flashcards. I think this is a great concept for instructors and students. I know I always used the 3 x 5 card method, which took a lot of time to write everything by hand. This is easy to incorporate and saves a lot of time for everyone.  The only negative would be that not all individuals have computers or internet access to be able to create the flashcards using Google Docs.

Hi Katie, I think it is getting to the point where all these technologies need to be mobile. That way students can use these technologies while they wait on their phone. Sheri

I thought the Google Flashcards was a unique idea. I have used Google Docs before, but I have not had the chance to use the flashcards setting.

I have never used Google Docs, but it looks pretty cool. I will have to check it out sometime.

I love Google Docs and they have a great selection of gadgets and games. I like that you can embed them into other websites, you don't have to just use them Google Docs. I just had my daughter create flashcards using this for her science test this week :)
