Pick a student in the class to answer. Pick which student on each team will read first. Pick a team to present first. This little selector is really easy to use and flexible. Allows you select a number randomly, sequentially, or random with no repeats. It’s a great way to promote active engagement by everyone and ensure fairness. This App is compatible with iOS7.
Ratings and Reviews
This is better for my class then the spinners. I started with the spinner app. I have had many awkward, repetitive team selections using the spinners. This awkwardness can be programmed not to happen with this app. I teach secondary and my students fist pumped and shouted ”yes!” when I announced that we will not have repeats! The spinners made a more playful atmosphere, whereas these selectors have a formal vibe.
Downside of this app is the programs do not save. The sounds could be more intense. The colors could be customized. An analog face would be welcomed. Also adding an a / b / c / d would be a great addition. Additionally, the app’s poor graphics on the iPad are noticeable by secondary students.
Good but needs to be a tiny bit better
With this app you can pick both the team and the team member with the push of one button (exactly what the Kagan Selector Spinners app needs) to reduce the instructional time used to operate the selector and to keep the flow of the lesson and classroom going. To that end, the app would be perfect if it saved the last student size and team numbers used. Also sound options would be nice but not necessary for practical use.
I find the Kagan iPhone apps very useful. I also have the selector tools program for my PC. But sometimes its easier just to zoom in on my iPhone with the overhead projector, and the app is helpful to walk around the classroom and use. Also, this app somewhat one-ups the Selector Tools program because this app has the ability to select students and teams simultaneously WITH NO REPEATS. Very useful when performing a team
Activity and you want to give each table a turn. Very nice.
Similar in function to selector spinners
Great idea to move Kagan's spinners to mobile devices! However, I don't really see the need to purchase both this one & the spinner app (prefer that one). Also, the selector sound is high pitched & can get old quickly. I'd like to see options for sounds.
