What is Quizlet?

Teachers have been using Quizlet with students for quite some time.    Quizlet LIVE, however – takes things to a whole new collaborative level.  Quizlet Live is an engaging in-class game where students work in teams to correctly match terms and definitions. The first team to match all terms and definitions correctly in a row wins the game!

Any teacher with a free Quizlet account can start a game of Quizlet Live for their students!

In order to play a game of Quizlet Live in your class, you’ll need:

  • A Quizlet account
  • A study set with at least six unique term and definition pairs.
  • Four or more students.
  • A computer, tablet or smartphone for each student .
  • A teacher-controlled device to project the instructions and leaderboard.
  • 10 to 20 minutes of class time.
