In just about all of our classrooms there are those students that will answer ALL of the questions you ask ALL of the time, right? I want to give other students a chance to have a voice too. I went on a search and found a few really good and FREE name selectors that are online.
The first one I am introducing to you is Random Name Picker by ClassTools.net. Just click "edit", copy and paste any list into the window and "save".
After a name is picked you can remove it from the wheel so that it doesn't come up again.
The Random Name Selector from Primary Technology is a very simple tool for choosing names from a list.
Once the name is picked you have the option of launching a countdown timer. You can also remove a name from the list after it has been chosen. Here is a video if you want to learn more about how to use it.
Another one that I really like and use a lot is a Random Name Generator by SuperTeacherTools.net.
You can upload a bulk list and save it to use any time that you need it. You do need to register but it is worth it.
