Have lots and facts and figures for your students to learn?
StudyBlue is an excellent (free) tool for creating flash cards that can be used in learning packets.
They have a free app that allows students to study their flash card packs using their mobile phones.
The sign-up is cumbersome, requiring a school, instructor, and course name, but once setup the tool is well worth the effort.
This is a excellent companion to Sophia. Use StudyBlue for Bloom's first level of learning - Knowledge (memorize, list, name, recognize, locate, label). Then use Sophia for the higher levels of learning: Application, Knowledge, Synthesis.
