Main Features

• Classes of up to 200 students each
• Select a student at random. Track correct responses
• Easily import student lists from Google Classroom
• Device speaks name aloud
• Take attendance so absent students are not called
• Create random groups

Now there is no need for teachers to use popsicle sticks or playing cards to call on students in class. Instead, use your macOS device to call on students in a truly random manner. For student enjoyment, use the 'speak aloud' option so students can hear their name called. The free version allows the use of 1 class while the premium upgrade supports up to 20 classes.

In my classroom I allow the last selected student to push the random call button. This really takes teacher bias out of the selection process and the students feel a need to participate when the device speaks their name.

Used for 3 years - essential

I’ve use this app for three years in my law school classroom and find it to be absolutely essential. I use it to make sure that I am being equitable in calling on all students at least once rather than just those who are eager to respond.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. It makes me extremely happy to know the app is helping with equitable participation in your classroom.

The free version allows most features for 1 class - random calling, attendance, groups. Feel free to email me at support@inpocketsolutions.com to give me more details on what else you'd like the free version to do?
