Microsoft Free Tools #7: Microsoft Flashcards

What is this application?

This is called FLASHCARDS and it is an application from Microsoft Education Labs.  I really like the idea of these flashcards. This is a great programme to teach your learners at school to use. They could use it for anything where facts are important - vocabulary recognition, spelling, history etc.

When we were in Seattle one of the group designed flashcards about Seattle, and at the time I was really taken with the idea.
