So, what exactly is StudyBlue? Who is it designed for and how would you use it?
StudyBlue allows teachers and students to make flashcards online. You can use StudyBlue online or on your mobile device. Students can view their flashcards as a review sheet, or quiz themselves while reviewing for a test. One of the newest things students can do with StudyBlue is, they can search and find other students flashcards on a subject.
Click to view the StudyBlue Blog. StudyBlue can be synced with your Evernote account and you can place a direct URL into Edmodo for your students to view any flashcards they create, or the ones that you have created for them.
A teacher can sign up for free at StudyBlue. After signing up, a teacher would need to create a class. Once the class is created, the teacher will receive a unique URL and class code that students will use to join the class. Both teachers and students can create their own flashcards to study for the next test. You can either type in your words and definitions, or import words and definitions from a spreadsheet. Images can be added to your flashcards also.
Obviously flashcards can be used for vocabulary and definition. But what about for math facts? Things like multiplication tables, learning addition & subtraction, or anything that students need to learn math facts for.
