With this new Timed Flash Cards tool, you can create a set of words or math problems to flash and cycle through on your Gynzy board. This tool is timed to add an interactive element that will challenge students and keep them engaged in the material.

This tool gives students another way to practice mental math, recognize letters, and memorize new words. You set how many words or problems the tool should cycle through, and how long it should stay on each challenge before moving to the new one.

Example of sight words in the new flash tool.

How does it work?

The tool opens with the settings screen. Here you can fill in your own list or edit an already entered list. This can be text or math problems. The tool will remember the last completed list.


Entering words or sentences

You can enter word lists by placing each word or sentence on a new line in the input field.

text list flash tool

Add a list of words in the ‘text’ option.

Entering math problems

When entering math problems, you place each problem on a new line, without the = sign and the solution.

Calculations list

Add math problems in the ‘Calculations’ option.


Tip: Do you want to save multiple lists or share them with a colleague? Then save the completed Flash as a lesson.


Customizing the tool to fit student needs

tool settings

Edit the tool settings for the timing, control and order of cards.

This tool can be used in a variety of ways. You can set it so that the words or problems cycle through automatically, or you can cycle through manually. When set to automatic, you can have the tool move through the list in the order you entered it, or you can have it randomize which challenge appears next. Once it begins cycling through, you can pause the tool at any time.
