Teacher's Pick HD for iPad gives you the ability to randomly and uniquely choose students without having to rely on memory, cups of craft sticks or flash cards. Just add your class names and the students in each class. Teacher's Pick keeps track of which students are active, inactive (already chosen) or absent and gives you options to pick a student from the active group or pick from the full group (active or inactive). At the end of the day or week just touch a button and all of the students present are returned to active status.
Teacher's Pick HD also allows you to randomly assign students to groups. Keep track of multiple groupings per class - work groups, lab partners, field trip buddies.
Other features include:
• Import lists of student names
• Export student info
• Assign up to three badges per student to mark progress or achievement
• Attractive and easy-to-use interface
What's New in Version 1.2
I used this all the time in the classroom. Didn't think I could use it when I went to the computer lab w/800 students. Instead of "student" names, I just used "computer 1; computer 2; computer 3" etc. Love the random grouping for projects!
