Academics & Flashcards

The following resources offer instruction for multiple subjects.

DIGITAL FLASHCARDS

There are numerous benefits to digital flashcards.  One unusual benefit I discovered is  using flashcard programs to decide which curriculum to own.  I appreciate not having to create flashcard sets, whenever that is possible, so much so that it was worth reviewing several flashcard sets on Latin in order to decide which curriculum to own.

Of course the usual benefits are that my student uses flashcards because I can insure that all main points and key vocabulary terms that I want him to remember receive extra attention.  His memory retention improves when he studies vocabulary terms before reading them in a textbook.   Terms can be reviewed as often as necessary and in audio format to improve pronunciation.

My student’s memory trick is to type text that he needs to memorize before testing his knowledge on the digital flashcards.  To make a typing test, he simply copies a term from a digital flashcard to a typing program.   This offers the added benefit of touch typing practice.  Our current favorite typing test program is listed first. For more information about typing and memorizing, visit TYPING AND MEMORIZING filed under ELECTIVES under LEARNING LINKS.  I list several digital flashcard programs because sometimes I have to look in other programs to find the set I want.

“Do not train children to learning by force and harshness,
but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able
to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
