Concept

A flash cards activity with a very simple interface.

  1. Dropdown or connection to journal to load a Deck of flashcards.
  2. Speed setting for displaying the cards
  3. Counter for number of times to display each card.

A b/w interface. With one side of a card being Black letters on a while field, and the other being reversed.

Accelerated learning

If you're familiar with principles of Accelerated Learning, you might have heard that strong visual stimulus and measured 1/second beats have a very positive effect on memorization.

Baroque is the most often cited example of music with a 60 beats per minute tempo.

Plans

I, isforinsects, plan on cutting my teeth in python writing this activity. If someone else gets to it first, I'm not going to cry about it. I'll probably try to code my own version just for practice.
