Collaborative Studying with CardKiwi

Our students are learning to do some much of their learning collaboratively these days.  Simple tasks that kids use to learn new words and ideas while at the bottom of the taxonomy are important elements to more in-depth learning.  Flash card learning, while boring and lower level can be a learning process for kids.  Make it fun with CardKiwi.  Upon returning home from work the other day, I arrived to find my middle schooler on a Skype call with a friend in her Spanish class.  The had been on a Skype call in which they had each built their own set of flash cards (paper ones) and were testing each other by holding the cards, one-by one, up to the camera and quizzing each other.  The tool CardKiwi is just one of the flash card tools out there that could have made this a much smoother process.  Watch the video below and see what you think.
