Flash Cards a Resource to Remember

Over the past few weeks, I have seemed to slip back into a bit of drill and practice with my students.  After a little time working with them on repetition, I began to remember how useful it can be for some learning applications.  So, I started to repeat key learning targets and use flash cards to help them remember certain facts and figures.  As we then moved into studying states and capitals, again, I looked at using flash cards to help students learn.  Since I use Moodle in my classes, I started to use their flash card application, but found that it was clunky and did not work the way that I wanted it to.  So, I looked online for another application that I could use on my website and found  Pauker.

After a first look and trial run, I really think this will fit the bill for my application.  Also, it is nice that some flash cards are already created that you can just simply download.  I always like open source programs with a community behind them.  Another bonus is that  it has a MiniPauker application that will allow you to use it on handheld devices and cell phones.  This is a Java application, so you may need to look at their compatibility page to see if this will fit your use of this program.  I found it very simple to use and setup.  I recommend it as a great application for creating flash cards for your students to learn.  Check them out at the address below.
