Slide 3

    Flashcards
    Flashcards are a great way to learn vocabulary or points of grammar.You can discover already created vocabulary 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 of vocabulary about fruit. The one on the bottom is an example of how flashcards can be used to revise grammar.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 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 future tense (top right), or search the GoConqr library for more examples. You might also find mind maps useful for organising your thoughts for written assignments such as letters or essays.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 translation 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 language learning, engaging the listening sense, and creating awareness of pronunciation and tone, key skills for oral exams.

Slide 8

    Groups
    A further feature of GoConqr is the ability to create groups.You can create or join groups for English learners and use the platform to connect with native English speakers.Groups can also be used for discussion outside the classroom which facilitates peer learning - keep up with what your friends are studying!
