CLICK HERE (http://goo.gl/fvztE3) for a template to randomly call on students.
This template is created in Google Sheets. If you are logged into your Google account you can use the File menu to make a copy.
Notice at the bottom there is a tab labeled “Roster.” Click on this tab to enter the list of names of your students. You can use this for each period you teach or for different groups you might have. Delete the default student names and enter in the names of your students.
Back on the first tab (Chooser) select the period you are randomly drawing from and a random name from the list will appear.
The spreadsheet uses a random number formula. The formula must be refreshed in order to generate a new name. You can refresh the page or type something into the spreadsheet. A box is provided to allow you to type a word. Type a new word in the box to generate a new random name. Suggestion to type a vocabulary word or something meaningful if you are projecting the random student chooser.
Instead of entering in student names into the roster page you could instead list discussion prompts or vocabulary words.

Thank you for sharing your template. I was prepared to learn how to build one rather than to have a gift!
Thanks for sharing. This sheet reminds me of @mrmatera’s Super Grouper spreadsheet – http://www.mrmatera.com/2014/03/google-spreadsheet-magic-part-1-super-grouper/ I appreciate how the teacher can show how the system is transparent and random.
Love this idea for an end of the year drawing for my students. Is there a way to edit the class names for the picker?
I answered my own question. It looks like it’s set up as a number generator. Still love it!
