Quizlet Multiplayer Game
Quizlet, which is probably the most comprehensive of all the web based flash card sites, has recently developed a multiplayer mode where you can play against other users in real time. This has been a feature that has been requested for quite a while by users and this week it was finally released. It reminded me of something I saw in an advanced language lab classroom earlier in the year on a tour of Watertown High School where the students played against each other while translating content. Quizlet's Multiplayer game focuses on sentences and using the words in context. It allows a group of students to write sentences using a vocabulary word, individually and anonymously rate everyone's sentences, and then review the mistakes of each sentence as if in a classroom peer editing setting. This game also tracks scores and statistics as do the other study games on the site. I see this study tool being wildly popular on Quizlet.
