Looking for new ways to engage your students? Try the Promethean Spinner App. This tool is a great way to get your students involved in the learning process and keep them interested. Here are three ways you can use the Promethean Spinner to add some magic to your lesson plans:

Random selections

The Promethean Spinner App can be used to randomly select a student to answer a question or participate in an activity. This is a great way to keep everyone involved and make sure that each student has a chance to participate. You can also use the app to randomly select groups or pairs for collaborative activities to promote working with different classmates and help build a sense of community in the classroom.

Classroom games

Another way to engage your students with the Promethean Spinner App is to use it for classroom games. Create your own games and import your own spinner lists. For example, try a trivia game based on a recent lesson or gamify your review activities. Adding a friendly competition to your lessons encourages a new and exciting way of learning and practicing concepts.

Brain breaks

Brain breaks are an important part of your classroom instruction. After a long period of focused learning, it can be helpful to take a break and engage in a quick activity. Use the app to randomly select a physical activity, like jumping jacks or stretches, or a fun game like “Simon Says.” This will help your students refocus and re-energize before moving to the next task.

By making learning fun, your students are sure to retain and enjoy the content that you are presenting. Access the Spinner from your ActivPanel, or add a dash of fun with the Spinner web app.
