Students love flashcards. But if they have a bunch of index cards in front of them and make flashcards by just copying text from the text or the web and then quickly look at the cards when they study, flashcards will be of little help. Feel free to share this brief video with them - three keys to getting the most from flashcards.

When flashcards are used right before an exam they're a waste - just a trick to load up short term memory and dump it a day later. But if flash cards are used across several days (the third recommendation in the video) then you're teaching your brain to store information and truly memorize, which is a very useful tool.
