iLEAP Pick a Student: An App for Calling on Students
Summary : An ordered way to call on students
iLEAP Pick a Student assists teachers in calling on students. After launching the app, teachers can tap the “+” button to add a class or the “Edit” button to change the name of a premade class. Users then tap the “Go” button to progress to the next screen, where they can enter in their students’ names by tapping the “+” button, or they can remove students by tapping a name and then the “Trash Can” button. Once the names are entered, users tap the “Start” button to begin calling on students. Users can select to call on students using the “Turn Based” or “Random” option. The “Turn Based” option ensures that all students answer a question before the same student is called on for a second time, while the “Random” option chooses students in no preset order.
- As part of a question-and-answer portion of class, teachers can call on students using the “Turn Based” option. That way, it will ensure that all students have an opportunity to answer a question. If the student who answered the question is incorrect, the teacher can then tap the “Random” button to ask any student the question. This way, students who have already answered a question will have a reason to continue engaging in the questions.
- When teachers want to ask a question, they can tap the “Random” button. This way, students cannot claim that teachers are singling them out.
- If teachers are doing a review activity in which they have divided their students into groups of three to five, teachers can use the “Random” button to select students. That way, the group that the selected student is in will have to answer a question, respond to a prompt, or engage in some other activity.
