At times it can be difficult to generate classroom discussion. Students may not be confident in raising their hands and contributing to the conversation. When this occurs, The Random Name Selector from ClassTools.net is helpful. All a teacher has to do is type in the students’ names, choose either the typewriter option or the fruit machine, and a random name is displayed.
This online tool keeps students listening, because The Random Name Selector could select their name at any time. It also gives opportunities to those students who usually do not volunteer to speak up in class to contribute to the discussion. Overall, the suspense contributes to a more engaged classroom.
