3 Good Random Name Pickers to Use with Your Students in Class

Share this post:  
In today's post, I am sharing with you three of my favourite random name picker tools to use with your students in class. These are ideal for both online and in-person instruction. The tools are web-based and do note require no software installation. They are also free and simple to use. 

The way this tool works is simple. Type in the names of students, click on submit then click on the wheel to start spinning. Once the selected name is displayed, the tool asks whether you want to remove the chosen name or not. You can edit and save your list, share it with others or embed it in your blog or class website.

Another great name selector tool to use in your teaching. It helps you randomly select a student name for a given task in class. The way it works is similar to the previous tool. "Type or copy/paste as many names as you'd like into the text field and then spin the wheel to see whose name gets chosen! After a name is chosen, a prompt will pop-up asking if you would like to delete that name". 

Another simple and easy to use random name picker tool. Like the the two previous tools, you can simply type in the names of your students or use images then click to spin. Wheel of Names offers the added functions  of shuffling and sorting names. Another cool feature is the ability to link your wheel with Google spreadsheet and import names from there. Wheel of Names works offline  but the offline version does not let you share or save your wheels.
