A lot of us have a cup with popsicle sticks on our desk. Each stick has a student name or number so we can randomly and fairly pick someone. What if you are not near your desk or want a more interesting way to choose students? The app Names in a Hat will do this for you. With a shake of the device, a name will be chosen until you go through the entire list. It will even keep track of the order drawn. Another feature is that it will divide the names into two or more teams. When the groups are chosen, you can set the device under your document camera for everyone to see. Try that with a cup of popsicle sticks!
