Lesson Idea – Do I know what you know?


Use Quizling to check your students’ knowledge before starting a unit of work.


Students bring knowledge, experiences and sometimes misinformation into our lessons!

Great teachers understand that knowing what your students know before you start – saves time, leads to higher engagement and better outcomes.

Quizling co-founder Damien Trask re-wrote a unit on Australians at War when he realised his class knew enormous amounts about the Australian experience of Gallipoli; and huge amounts about the Nazis – but had conflated their understanding to believe the Nazis were at Gallipoli!

Quizling makes this fun!
