Ditch the popsicle sticks with the Randomizer!

Choosing a random student can sometimes be met with “but they already had a turn!” And cold calling a student can make students feel called out. Use the Randomizer to solve both problems and select students the fair way!

The Randomizer remembers which students have already been selected; every student will be picked before a student gets a second turn.

And if you select a group of students before clicking the Randomizer, it will randomly pick a student from within that group.


Use Timer as a shot-clock in the classroom!

There are a few things you can do with Timer:

  • Choose a pre-added Timer, or create your own in increments of 15 seconds

  • Add some jeopardy-like music

  • Minimize and keep giving points as usual

  • Add 15 seconds at any time

  • Set the Timer to automatically repeat for recurring classroom procedures

  • Use “Reset” to start over

    Turn on the “Repeat” function and set the Timer to 5 minutes. Whenever the Timer goes off, look for students meeting your expectations and award points! It’s a fun and engaging way to stay positive.


LiveSchool’s Stopwatch makes it easy to time students, and continue giving points!

With Stopwatch you can:

  • Minimize and keep giving points

  • Add jeopardy-like music

  • Clear to reset back to zero

There’s a “Top Times” feature, that lets you track the top 3 shortest or the top 3 longest times.


Test students’ PEMDAS skills – or use it for quick calculations or double-checking (for us non-math teachers).
