Welcome to ImageQuiz, a website that uses the power of images (1 image = 1000 words) to help you learn. The website contains a variety of quizzes, tagged according to topic: just select a topic that interests you from the sidebar, then select a quiz. Can't think of one? Do a random quiz.
Each quiz will prompt you to click on a particular part of the image that you will hopefully recognise. For example, the image might be a map of the world and the prompt asks you to click on Brazil (easy, it's the biggest country in South America!).
The best thing about ImageQuiz is that you can make your own: to share with friends; to help you with your studies; or just for fun. Simply click create new, upload an image, and draw on outlines around the elements you want users to click on.
I think I might try this as an intervention for some of my struggling readers.
