Engage Your Students with Class Tools

All about LiveSchool's built-in tools to engage students and run systems.

Random Student Selector

Ditch the popsicle sticks with our Random Student Selector!

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 our Random Student Selector to solve both problems and select students the fair way!

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

Timer

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.

Stopwatch

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.

Calculator

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