The Revision Game





Revisions just have to be fun! And FlipQuiz is a great tool to use for revising language or content.




After signing up, one begins by creating a new quiz board, give it a name, and with the choice of six categories, there will be five questions for each. Then, for each question, the creator of the quiz board, adds the correct answer. Save, and it's ready to go. 

In class, before projecting the quiz, I give each small group a laminated white board and their own marker. The groups then have to write their answer and raise their board. The first team with the correct answer wins the prize (i.e. if the question is worth 1 point, 1 chocolate coin, if 2 points, 2 chocolate coins; up to the 5 coins for the 5 point question). 

Flipquiz works well on iPads as well, so that is another bonus using it, if you happen to be teaching with iPads. 

Revisions? Definitely a lesson to look forward to!

  1. Thanks for sharing this tool, Ana Cristina! I don't have a projector in class though, so I'm trying to figure out how to use it independently...

  2. Hi Nastya,

    Thank you for visiting! Yes, I understand your situation but, instead of projecting, you could play this revision game in another way - use Stick-It-Notes on the board, with the questions hidden from the students. In this way, they would still be deciding on which question to ask and there is an element of "suspense".

    Hope this works out for you!

  3. Hi Ana, great idea, I am gonna use the Stick-it-Note though as we don't have projectors yet. Can we share your ideas in our community we are trying to set up on fb? https://www.facebook.com/TeachingEnglish21C

  4. Hi Stella, glad that you liked the idea of using Stick-It-Notes :-)

    They can be used for different kinds of activities in the classroom - learning and doing revisions, doesn't always have to be digitally-dependent :-)
