Cultural Considerations

Memrise empowers all students. Points are earned based on reviewing when necessary. If a student gets it wrong the first time, they can earn the points on the second try.

Actions

Setting up an account is easy:
1. Go to memrise.com
2. Sign up for an account (free)
3. Clreate a course
4. You can choose to open the Course to the public or keep it unlisted. I recommend to keep the course unlisted so that my students are only competing within their class. (you share a link with your students)
5. Start adding your words and definitions. Under "bulk add" You can copy and paste your entire list into the box and the system will do all the work for you.

Resources

Memrise runs on any browser and there is an easy to use app available for ios and android devices.
The app can even run when the device is offline. It syncs once a wifi connection is established. I have many students who review on the bus to and from school using their ipod.

Description

memrise.com is an easy to use platform for students to learn and review information. Memrise uses memory Science to ensure that the information is retained way beyond the test.
Memrise has two steps:
1. "Planting" Students start by learning new information. (Short term memory).
2. "Watering" reviewing and working on long term memory.
