Teachers probably don’t need reminding that Active Recall is one of the best practices to consolidate classroom learning. Suffice to say that the easiest way to employ Active Recall on a regular basis is with Education Quizzes.
Active Recall is the online equivalent of flash cards and much, much easier to keep organized.
The quizzes are perfect for practice, learning and review.
Every time your students play one of our quizzes, they’ll remember things they’ve already learned - it’s called Active Recall.
The best way of explaining it is with an example:
Imagine you meet someone for the first time. You’re told their name, but then you don’t see them again for a year. When you do see them, it’s not very likely you’ll remember their name.
Now imagine you meet somebody else, only this time you speak to them a few times over the next year. This time it’s almost certain you WILL remember their name. Every time you speak to them, your brain uses Active Recall to recall their name. The more often you remember their name, the better it sticks in your mind – until you know it without a thought.
Active Recall forces the brain to remember, instead of just asking it to. Playing a quiz is a prime example of Active Recall.
As far as education is concerned, Active Recall is probably the best way to learn. Information becomes easy to remember when you need it - in the exam room, for example. With more and more pressure on students to do well in exams, Active Recall is the best way to practice.
Education Quizzes isn’t the only way to learn and review, but it’s probably the best. Our quizzes are ready-made for all the tests and exams you will face at school.
A single subscription gives you the ability to create up to 40 student accounts – each with their own username and password. This means an entire class can log in to the site and benefit from the proven technique of Active recall whenever they want, wherever they happen to be and with whatever device they use to connect to the internet.
A monthly subscription costs $12.50. Alternatively, you can take out a yearly subscription for only $50 - a saving of over $70.
When you are logged in, go to ‘Your account’ which is top right of any page. From here, you can create up to 40 ‘child’ accounts for your class. Within this area, you can also view the report of each pupil. This enables you to see which quizzes they have played over a certain period, as well as the scores for each quiz.
