Digital flashcards or hand written flashcards? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Just wondering what you guys think is better just for general GCSE revision for things like sciences. With digital flashcards I mean ones that you make on websites like quizlet and hand written just the normal index cards where you write your things on.
    Here are some points for digital flashcards:
    -It's much faster
    -You can do activities with the flashcards online

    Points for the handwritten ones:
    -Helps you retain info when your writing it down
    -Takes a long time and its easy to lose them

    What do you guys think?? Personally I think I prefer quizlet

    Digital ones are best for phones when you are travelling on the bus and stuff like that.

    Physical ones are best when you have another person with you so you can't easily cheat and you both can learn stuff.
