    Flashcards
    Flashcards are a great way to learn key concepts or definitions.You can discover already created flashcard decks which you can use to revise on the go, using the GoConqr mobile app.You could break a topic into sections and you and your friends could each work on  making flashcards for a different section. You can then share the decks in a class group created on GoConqr, or by emailing directly to your friends.The flashcard deck on the top right is an example using concepts associated with studying population. Another deck (bottom right) will help you learn about earthquakes.Try these decks and then create your own!

    Quizzes
    GoConqr quizzes are a useful and fun way for you to test your learning. You can ask your teacher to create a test for you, find one already online, or make one for your friends.You can create quizzes with a variety of question types, including multiple choice and fill-in-the-blanks.You can take the test multiple times and track your improvement. When your friends review their answers, they can see not only their result, but why their answer was correct or incorrect.Quizzes can be timed.Creating your own quiz is a wonderful way to deepen and demonstrate your mastery of subject material, and you can have fun competing with your friends. Why don't you invite your friends to try the quizzes on the left?

Slide 5

    Using Mind Maps
    Mind maps are used to arrange information visually to facilitate understanding and recall.You could create resources such as the mind map guide to river processes (top right), or search the GoConqr library for more examples. Mind maps are also useful for planning essays.Each node represents a concept or idea, and  you can include further information or explanation  in attached notations.You can check off nodes as you learn concepts or complete  tasks, and keep track of your progress.

Slide 6

    Notes
    You can take notes in class, or make notes at home.These can be shared in groups and used for revision, on a desktop computer, or on the GoConqr mobile app.You can copy, edit, and combine notes, collaborating  with your friends to make a revision guide for exams.Notes can include images, video and links to other resources created in GoConqr.

Slide 7

    Slides
    Slides can be used for traditional presentations in class, but GoConqr slides can be used for so much more:Other resources, including quizzes, mind maps and flashcards, can be embedded in slides, organising your material for easy access and presentation.Videos can also be embedded in slides, so you can show video excerpts straight from your GoConqr slides.The use of video and audio clips can contribute significantly to learning, as you will bring all your senses into play, enhancing recall when you need it!

Slide 8

    Groups
    A further feature of GoConqr is the ability to create groups.You can create a group for each of your classes or exams, making it easy for you to share resources with your friends.Groups can be used for discussion outside the classroom which facilitates peer learning - keep up with what your friends are studying!As GoConqr is a global platform, you could also create a group which includes students from other countries, to so you can get to know new people and  learn more about other lifestyles and cultures.
