    Flashcards
    Flashcards are a great way for students to learn snippets of information to commit to memory, such as quotes you may need for an essay.They can discover already created flashcard decks which they 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 of quotes and context from the Great Gatsby. Another example gives a refresher on the characters from Of Mice and Men.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 your answers, they can see not only their result, but why their answer was correct or incorrect. Quizzes can be timed.Creating your own quizzes 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 quiz 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 like the mind map guide to The Tempest (top right), which includes annotations and illustrations, or search the GoConqr library for more examples. You may also find mind maps useful for organising your thoughts for written assignments such as essays.The mind map on the bottom right is an example using The Merchant of Venice.Each node represents a concept or idea, and further information or explanation can be included in attached notation.You can check off nodes as you learn concepts or complete tasks, and keep track of your progress.

    Notes
