Bitsboard - a nice flashcard type app for ESL

Bitsboard is an app allowing a student to practice their understanding of basic words associated to images.

There are five different games for each board, a board consisting of a set of words in one category.  For example a board could contain words associated with different foods, and each word has a paired image and audio pronunciation. 

You have the ability to create your own board using your own pictures.  Better yet, have students create their own board.

Also, you can download other boards created from the online shared Bitsboard community, or modify existing boards.

Finally, thinking outside the box use this app like flashcards for learning vocabulary in higher level courses, like science, social studies, and math.
