Wheel Decide

Principal function(s): Poll and survey creators

A free online spinner tool that makes it possible to create your own digital wheels. Educators can use it to pick a random student in class to answer a question or participate in a classroom activity, spin a wheel of questions, topics, or vocabulary terms, or randomly assign groups or teams. One has to fill the choice boxes, give a name to your wheel and apply the changes. To save a wheel, one has to register with a Facebook account or simply bookmark the URL, and the choices will be saved. Evaluation: Wheel Decide is engaging and easy to use. Users can give wheels a title, and pick advanced options regarding colour schemes that can be changed, seconds to spin, and more. Wheel Decide is great for having students pick topics for presentations and projects. Teachers could also use it to pick topics for review games in class. Another option would be to randomly call on students during class time. Wheel Decide is also very useful for studying vocabulary or even assigning teams. After creating a wheel, teachers can copy the embedded code to their classroom learning management system or website.

Cost: Free without registration

Medium (?). Wheel Decide does not have a proper privacy section so it is difficult to assess. It uses cookies and displays advertisements, which seem to be tailored to user location. Wheel Decide employs Google Analytics on all pages, so wheel choices that are created with the individual choice entry method will be visible to Google and to the administrators of the website. It acknowledges users’ rights to data deletion and provides a form to request it. Wheel Decide does not state compliance with the GDPR. See more here.

Saving work for future use Possiblity to save your or others´ work for reuse/reproduction


Tailorability (If so, how?) Possibility of the tool to be used for a range of different activities (e.g. to what extent you can organize a project assignment with a central activity based on this tool)
