Slide 3

    Flashcards are a great way for you to learn snippets of information to commit to memory, such as concepts you may need for an essay, explanation of terms, or formulas.You can discover already created flashcard decks which you can use to revise on the go, using the GoConqr mobile app.You could break a topic into sections and you and your friends could each work on making flashcards for a different section. You can then share the decks in a class group created on GoConqr, or by emailing directly to your friends.The flashcard decks on the right give examples of key terms to be revised for a selection of economics topics.Try these decks and then create your own!

Slide 4

    GoConqr quizzes are a useful and fun way for you to test your learning. You can ask your teacher to create a test for you, find one already online, or make one for your friends.You can take the test multiple times and track your improvement. When your friends review your answers, they can see not only their result, but why their answer was correct or incorrect. Quizzes can be timed.Creating your own quizzes is a wonderful way to deepen and demonstrate your mastery of subject material, and you can have fun competing with your friends. Why don't you invite your friends to try the quiz on the left?

Slide 5

    Using Mind Maps
    Mind maps are used to arrange information visually to facilitate understanding and recall.You could create resources such as the mind map guide to economic theories (top right) or one on markets (bottom right), or search the GoConqr library for more examples. Mind maps are also useful for planning essays and written assignments.Each node represents a concept or idea, and  you can include further information or explanation  in attached notations.You can check off nodes as you learn concepts or complete  tasks, and keep track of your progress.

Slide 7

    Slides can be used for traditional presentations in class, but GoConqr slides can be used for so much more:Other resources, including quizzes, mind maps and flashcards, can be embedded in slides, organising your material for easy access and presentation.Videos can also be embedded in slides, so you can show video excerpts straight from your GoConqr slides.The use of video and audio clips can contribute significantly to learning.

Slide 8

    A further feature of GoConqr is the ability to create groups.You can create a group for each of your classes or exams, making it easy for you to share resources with your friends.Groups can be used for discussion outside the classroom which facilitates peer learning - keep up with what your friends are studying!You can also form a group with students from other schools who are studying similar topics or, as GoConqr is a global platform, you could create a group including students from another country which could be useful for comparative economics.
