Flashcards

A flashcard is a double sided card showing a picture of a specific challenge, phenomenon, or good example (relevant to the project area) on the front. It poses a question which triggers the audience to take a closer look at the picture. On the back a more elaborated explanation is given on the topic it addresses.

They can be used to trigger discussion or to enhance fast learning. When they are used in a group, people can learn from each other, because different people will focus on different aspects in the same flashcard.

They can be used in the field during farmer meetings and in groups. Also they can be used as a joint assignment: let the participants develop their own cards in groups.
