[prMac.com] Annapolis, Maryland - As summer fades and kids head back to school, teachers will be searching for ways to make learning more engaging and, well, fun. gWhiz recognizes the potential for its free mobile flashcard app, gFlash, to reenergize the classroom, drawing teachers and students closer. Through its integration with Google, gFlash allows teachers to easily create flashcards on their computers or on their smart devices and share them with the entire class. By simply filling in a preformatted template on Google Spreadsheets and either uploading the card set to the gWhiz catalog or sharing the document directly with selected users, the information can be transmitted quickly and easily. After spending time studying the material, anytime and anywhere, students can test their knowledge by creating a customized quiz in gFlash+.
"Teachers are busy people. We think they will appreciate a free tool that allows them to share information with their students quite effortlessly," remarks Kevin Reville, gWhiz founder. "Here at gWhiz, we believe in the power of technology to engage students in a way that is both effective and appealing."
gWhiz's flagship flashcard app, gFlash+, is available on both iOS and Android platforms with well over a million downloads by individuals and educational institutions. gFlash banishes rote memorization and offers users a fun and engaging new way to study. The free version of gFlash boasts a rich collection of features including multiple choice selection, multisided cards, graphic scoring, flashcard boxes, audio and image flashcards, and embedded HTML. gFlash also offers users the opportunity to upgrade their experience through in-app purchase. Educators can also purchase gWhiz's gFlashPro flashcard app via Apple's educational discount program to get the entire set of gFlash upgrades upfront at a very affordable price.
It has never been easier for teachers to engage their students and share information. With gFlash+, the entire classroom can create and share flashcard sets in minutes and at no cost. What teacher wouldn't love that?
