Name Picker Ninja | Random Name Selector

Name Picker Ninja | Random Name Selector | technologies | Scoop.it
Pick a random name from a list with the help of the Name Picker Ninja! The Name Picker Ninja randomly picks a name out of a list of names.
John Dalziel's insight:
Name Picker Ninja is free tool for quickly randomly selecting a name from a list. 
Using Name Picker Ninja is a simple matter of... 
  - pasting or typing a list of names into the "add names" field and then 
  - clicking "go!" 
...the names in your list will scroll and stop on a randomly selected name. 
Once a name has been selected users can... 
  - remove it from the list or 
  - keep it in the rotation. 
It's worth taking a look at Richard Byrne's demonstration video at https://www.youtube.com/embed/n5ZekADJtsU ;
Name Picker Ninja is useful for choosing learners for all kinds of classroom activities and is therefore well worth a closer look! 
P.S. It engages Learners as they are never sure when they will be selected to answer a question, deliver their presentation, the list goes on...

John Dalziel's insight:

The Random Name Selector from Primary Technology is a simple tool for picking names from a list users have created.
Users have the option of limiting question/feedback/answer times by launching a one minute to seven minute countdown timer.
To use the selector just type in or copy a list of names then hit "go."
Users also have the option to remove a name from the list after it has been selected which can ensure everone within a group is asked once during contact time.
P.S. Ideal for Teachmeets as well!
