Tech It Up Tuesday: Kahrds

September22

Here it is: Tuesday again—which means it’s time for the next installment of “Tech It Up Tuesday”, a series devoted to sharing an edtech tool, app, site or other resource that can be utilized in the classroom setting.

This week’s tech-isode features Kahrds, a free online interactive tool based on creating study sets, or flashcards.

Here’s how it works: After creating an account, users have the option of generating a new set—which includes selecting a category, providing a name for the set, choosing the language and setting the visibility options: Private (access is restricted to the creator), Public (the set is listed in the Community Section) or Limited (only users with the direct link to the set have access).

Once this section is complete, data can be entered into a new set by utilizing one of two methods: Typing each word and definition into the set or by using the “Import Kahrds” feature—which essentially allows the user to copy and paste info from another source.

Besides generating “Flash Kahrds“, this tool also automatically produces a variety of related activities that can be used to study the sets including Hangman, Crossword Puzzle, Pop Quiz, Quick Type and more! Just as an FYI: Most games require a minimum of ten cards to play.

Kahrds will work on any device that can access the Internet—desktop, laptop, tablet, etc. and is available 24/7; however, there is currently no mobile app offered for this tool.
