This week we are sharing a great resource for the upcoming assessment season: create and share flashcards using FunnelBrain. FunnelBrain allows students to create their own flashcards, study groups, and access to thousands of flashcards organized by grade level or topic that other users have created. It is a wonderful way to review for a test or quiz as well as a collaboration tool for groups.

To get started, visit: http://www.funnelbrain.com/


You do not need an account to browse and review the library of thousands of already created flashcards. If you wish to create your own cards, click on "create flashcards."


Before you can create your deck, you have to sign-up by providing your email address and creating a password.


You have to create the deck for the flashcards to go in. You can use tags for your deck to make it easier for other users to find your deck.


Once you have created your deck, it is time to get busy adding cards. There are several options for text size, color, and number of sides for each flashcard.


Once you have created your flashcard, you click on "done" and repeat the process for every flashcard you wish to create.


After you create your flashcards, you can review them. FunnelBrain has several interactive features that make flashcards a lot of fun. As you complete the review, the brain graphic on the left side of the page fills up. Also, the screen displays the average amount of time the user took to answer each flash card as well as the accuracy rate.


FunnelBrain also has two game options that transform your flashcards into interactive games. The above screenshot is the soccer game which displays each question with four answer choices. Each time the correct answer is selected, the user scores a goal. This is a very positive and fun way to review knowledge. Students could create flashcards for other students with a competition to see who can score the most goals; all while learning along the way!
