Personally I've never put much faith in flashcards and associate them more with rote learning, but this site makes a lot of claims for its product so ...

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, May 12, 4:09 AM
Flashcards are very popular, although our current understanding of how learning happens shows that they have limited use. However, they could be helpful as part of a larger learning experience. Many learners have a lot of faith in being able to memorise things by using flashcards, so if it builds their confidence in some way there could also be value in that

With visual presentation being a common way to present information is a classroom full of students with disabilities, as well as just a useful way to appeal to more students, this is a great tool for teachers.  Also, it could be a great way for students to understand information in a way that might make better sense to them.

Photo proof is required to receive points for a mission. Luckily, our smartphone apps make completing a mission incredibly easy.
Just select the mission you want to complete from the mission list, take a picture with the phone's camera and press the submit button. You'll receive the points right away, but remember that all photos are subject to review. This means that you can lose those points at any time if the photo isn't good enough.

not too sure about some of the copyright status of these clips, but there is a wealth of material available.  At least have a look and decide for yourself about any risk - but as long as you don't commercialise the materials, you should be fine - use the "illustration for instruction" exception.
