Random Name Choose
The ability to keep your students on the edge of their seats when you're asking questions goes along way to keeping them thinking and engaged. Choosing names at random is a great way to do that and in the past it was all about the popsicle sticks. But this is the 21st Century and popsicle sticks are old school. I've written about different tools (iLeap, Wheel Decide, &Stick Pick) to randomly choose names in the past and now there's one more to add to the mix. Random Name Picker lets you put in your students' names and spin the wheel to select one. You can then take a student's name off the list once they've been chosen.
It's totally free, without sign-up, and you can use a password to save each list so you don't have to retype it every time. It will also run on an iOS device.
