Title: Native Americans, Europeans, and Students Quizzing Students
Description:

In this learning activity, students will distinguish differences among major American Indian cultures in North America using the tool gFlash.  This tool creates electronic flashcards and quizzes for students to use as notecards.

The tool gFlash allows the creation of electronic flashcards as well as the ability to access quizzes and tests from the created flashcards. These flashcards can be shared among users so students will have the ability to view fellow classmates' notecards. A great way for students to learn is by aiding others, this application grants the way for this to be possible. Students can quiz one another with the flashcards they have created or the quizzes within the application itself. There is an old saying that states that "Practice makes perfect" and the use of gFlash supports this saying. Not only do students practice new content by reviewing the note cards but by creating them.
