What makes Flip Flash Cards unique?
It is well documented that flaschards exercise the mental process of memory retention and recall.
Studies by universities including Oxford University and the University of British Columbia report that students have greater success at retaining information when they are repeatedly presented with the information and actively work to recall that information.
This makes the flashcard format particularly useful when introducing students to new subject areas, especially ones that require them to become familiar with a new subject ‘language’ or set of terminologies.
Digital flashcards featuring the key points of a chosen subject in a question and answer format become a powerful m-learning aid, available anywhere, anytime on any mobile device with the Flip Flash Cards app . Constant revision assists in building memory retention and recall, which brings forth the information from short to long-term memory.
What are Flashcards?
Flashcards are a set of cards bearing information as words or numbers, on either or both sides, used in classroom drills or in private study. One writes a question on a card and an answer overleaf. Flashcards can bear vocabulary, historical dates, formulas or any subject matter that can be learned via a question and answer format. Flashcards are widely used as a learning drill to aid memorization by way of visual and audible repetition.
