Flashcard Factory

Redefine how your students learn vocabulary.

Flashcard Factory was designed to transform the way students engage with vocabulary. When you play Flashcard Factory students pair up and work together to create dynamic and engaging flashcards. Students collaborate to illustrate and define terms, making learning vocab an active and social experience! Flashcard Factory is free to use and works with Google Apps for Education.

Incredible integrations with:
Google, Merrian-Webster, and Gimkit logos

Get started with Flashcard Factory

Often we ask students to memorize vocabulary terms, but we know that memorization does not equal long-term retention. If we want those words to stick, we must introduce and reinforce them within a conceptual framework. Pear Deck’s Flashcard Factory was designed to help students build that framework. You can build, import, export, and share vocabulary lists with Flashcard Factory editor. Have a list of terms but need to find the definitions? Use the Merriam-Webster integration to look up definitions as you create your list. Want to share your list with another teacher? All your vocab lists are saved in Google Drive and can be easily shared.  After you’ve played Flashcard Factory with your class, remember to export your cards to Gimkit and give students the link so they can use their work to study! Learn more about Flashcard Factory or get started with one of our suggested lists.

How It Works

#1 Create your list

Create a vocabulary list, using either your own definitions or suggestions from Pear Deck’s seamless integration with Merriam-Webster.

#2 Production Phase

Play Flashcard Factory! Students are paired up to create unique visual and written illustrations for each term. Their cards go to Quality Control where you can review and choose which ones to ship!

#3 Ship & Study

Once your final set is approved, save the cards. Your class can print their cards for review, or export to Gimkit to play with their own class set!

“We love using Flashcard Factory in the classroom! What a great review and students were able to keep their flashcards to study! Who said vocabulary has to be mundane!”
