Cram is an interactive digital tool for creating, studying, and sharing flashcards.
In this hands-on workshop we will learn how to:

- navigate a large library of flashcards created by other users
- create our own stack of cards and share it with our students.
We will explore how to asses students’ knowledge on a subject that they have recently learned via memorisation activities, games or a test, which makes Cram an interesting and innovative tool of formative assessment.
