    Flash cards Quizzes Mind Maps Notes Slides GoConqr tools provide an easy way to access and create resources to facilitate studying science.Let's look at how you can use these tools to help you get better at science!
    GoConqr tools for learning science 

Slide 3

    Flashcards
    Flashcards are a great way to learn key concepts or formulas.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 physics formulas. Another deck (bottom right) teaches students to identify lab equipment.Try these decks and then create your own!

Slide 4

    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 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 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 blood  (top right), or search the GoConqr library for more examples.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.

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. 

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!You and your friends could work on problem sets individually and then comment on each other's work or you could share your notes about your experiments and even include photos of the outcomes.
