I am 10-year teacher and a 12-year avid user of Anki. For a while now I’ve believed that spaced retrieval practice needs to find more of a foothold in our classrooms. Anki is the purest form of srs and so I’d like to see this implemented here.
The idea is this:
Have decks that are common to the class and are synced to a “group/whole class” account.
Each class period, the students have 5-10 seconds to respond as a group to each card on their own devices. If they take too long to respond, the cards continue, but the non-responses are marked as “again”.
To determine review schedule for the class, the mean score of all responses is taken as the group response.
Ideally, individual review schedules would also be generated and synced, so that responses during group review affected individual review schedules, and vice-versa.
In theory, this would facilitate spaced retrieval practice at the classroom level, with comparative results. If anyone would like to explore this further with me, I would be happy to partner with you in developing an add-on, etc. and providing a test environment that would make this possible.
