Teacher training is a popular degree right now. Although the economic climate means that graduates are finding it hard to get work in other areas and industries, teachers are always in demand. Whether you want to study for a qualification like TESOL or TEFL and teach abroad, or you want to teach in a school at home, teacher training requires that you learn a lot of information, fast. TEFL courses can last a matter of weeks before you’re expected to be able to hold a class on your own, while home-based teacher training rarely lasts longer than one or two years.
Because the course duration is so short, you need to ensure that you can get to grips with the material quickly. That’s exactly where iFlipTips can help: it’s a revolutionary study app from TECHtionary that will change the way you learn. Not only will you be able to retain information quicker, but you’ll also improve your memory recall and streamline your study process.
How iFlipTips Works
iFlipTips increases the efficiency of your learning in several different ways. Firstly, its flashcard-based structure enables you to break down information into bite-sized pieces so your studying becomes more manageable.
Each card can contain text, an image, an audio clip and a video clip. Using these formats, you can learn what you need to know quicker. The iFlipTips developers recognize that not everyone learns most efficiently through reading, and that different students have different learning types. Using text, images, video clips and audio, you can discover the learning type that works best for you, and speed up your study process.
iFlipTips Digital Flashcards
When you study with iFlipTips, you’ll have access to three different types of digital flashcards: iTipsIdeas cards, iFlipCards and iFlipSlides. Each of these types of cards helps you learn in a slightly different way.
iTipsIdeas Cards are great for exam preparation. You can use them to make notes after classes and lectures, and when you’re just starting out with your studying.
Once you’ve transferred your study notes onto iTipsIdeas cards, you can use iFlipCards to test what you know. These are similar to question and answer flashcards, where you write the question on one side of the card and then the correct answer on the other side of the card. When testing yourself, view the question side of the card, write down what you think to be the correct answer, then “flip” the card over to reveal the true answer. This is a helpful way to reveal gaps in your knowledge before the real exam so you have time to fill them.
The app also comes with a built-in calendar so you can plan your studying. Each calendar appointment has its own icon so you can see at a glance whether you’re supposed to be studying for your exams, attending a class or handing in a paper on any given day. It will also send push reminders to your iPhone so you don’t have to worry about forgetting an important event.
With a range of useful tools that will change the way you study for good, try iFlipTips today and see how the app will revolutionize your learning.
