Need more Pro-D?


The educational site built by the Ted Talks folks, Ted-Ed is a site where you can search for videos complete with lessons you can use alongside them. They are polished, detailed, and fun. You can also search by categories, like “Literature and Language.” You can use plain old Ted Talks in the classroom, and have the students create and deliver their own.

All teachers on Quizlet can create Live games with their students for FREE.

What you need to create a game:

  • A Quizlet study set (with at least 12 unique terms)
  • At least six students
  • A computer, tablet, or phone for each student
  • 10-20 minutes of class time

How does it work?

  • Students work together in randomized teams of 3 or 4
  • Teams race to match all the terms and definitions
  • Incorrect answers reset the team's progress to zero
  • The first team to match all 12 terms correctly in a row wins.
  • At the end of a game, teams see what what they matched correctly and incorrectly

How to set up a game in your class:

  1. Set up your computer to project your screen to the class
  2. Give each student a computer or tablet
  3. On your computer, go to the set you’d like your students to study
  4. Select the purple "Live" button in the study mode section. If you don't see the button, you may need to update your account settings so we know you're a teacher.
  5. On the next screen, select "Create game
