Electronic flash cards have been done many times before, but Smart Terms offers you and your students a whole new set of possibilities with interactive flashcards in Smart Revise.
Terms and Definitions
A comprehensive set of terminology with exam board definitions
We have pored over every specification document to create a set of terms that are specific for the course your students are studying.
Forensically exploring mark schemes, popular textbooks, and computing dictionaries to create the best succinct definitions that will gain marks in typical “state” and “describe” questions.
Creating custom decks of cards by topic and level of confidence is so simple
Interactive and reflective options
Engage students in active learning
In addition to a classic flashcard mode, set Smart Revise to “interactive” and students must write their own definition of a term before flipping to see the back of the card.
Toggle topics on and off so that students are only presented with terms they have already learned.
See how much students are engaging and watch their confidence grow
Students must record their confidence with each term which allows teachers to use this data in new and interesting ways in the classroom. Elevating classic flashcards into an intervention tool.
Additional details on many of the cards help students apply their knowledge of the term
10 new awards to attain
Generates incentives and healthy competition in a class
To encourage students to engage with Smart Revise, students can achieve a set of awards simply by using Smart Terms.
At Stroud High School, at the end of a topic, students are asked to enter a definition for each term and RAG rate themselves against a correct answer. The teacher reviews the definitions that their students entered, and evaluates their self-assessment RAG rating, modifying it for those students who had over-estimated their understanding of a term.
The teacher also uses class data reports to understand which terms the class as a whole feel they least well understand. At the end of the course this data informs revision sessions focusing on areas of the specification different groups of learners want to revise.
Classic revision cards enable students to revise key terms, but they do little for the teacher who could use data to help their students further. Smart Terms provides an answer.
