I’ve been using this with my own students over the past year and I usually set it as homework once a fortnight with KS4 classes. One thing that always bothered me was not being able to easily monitor the students to make sure they were doing the homework. Luckily, they have recently added some new features which are specifically for teachers. These new teacher tools allow you to create classes and track student progress, and setting it up is all pretty straightforward. Just register as a teacher, click ‘Classes’, create your first class, then select the ‘Courses’ that you want that class to have access to. All you have to do is provide students with the link or invite them via email. If students are already signed up they just need to log in and type in the link, then they will be added to that class. Once the games have been played you can then view an overall leaderboard for each class (weekly, monthly and all time), as well as a leaderboard for each topic.
I’m going to continue setting Memrise as homework, alongside Zondle, with my KS4 classes and whoever is at the top of the leaderboard for that topic at the end of the fortnight will win a prize.
All of the AQA GCSE French and Spanish vocabulary has been uploaded so feel free to hand out the following sheets to your students or use them for displays. I typed in the Spanish vocabulary but not the French so thank you to whoever did!
How do you use Memrise with your classes? Feel free to leave a comment below.
