Efficiency value

 

The possibilities are endless. This is a very efficient application in a way that you know what you get. The wheal of fortune concept is known by almost anyone, which leads to high usefulness.

 

Content value

 

The content can be added by the teachers or the pupils themselves, which is to our opinion a must when you charge €0,99 for an application that looks so simple at first sight.

 

Motivational value


The concept is clear for every pupil, and it is more fun than picking cards out of a hat.

Comments
We feel it is a bit disappointing that such a simple application is hidden behind a pay-wall. Indeed it is a fun way to pick something or someone in a random way, but bringing a real wheel of fortune into the classroom might be even more exciting.

Lesson ideas

 

  • When there is a speaking exercise and you have to pick the order in which the pupils have to present their speaking assignment, it might be a more fun alternative than simple calling their class number or picking a nametag out of a box.

 

  • When you let your pupils decide the subject matter for the coming week or so, this application might help in choosing the order in an objective way, provided the lessons do not have a specific order.

 

  • In your wheel of fortune, you add different kinds of methods. You divide the class into groups and let each group spin, like this fate will decide which group does which method next and allows for some variety.

 

  • In you wheel of fortune, you add the different tenses. You offer them a verb, and they have to conjugate the verb according to the tense that is chosen by the application.

 

  • Pupils can make up a story with supporting words from the wheel of fortune.

 

 

Objectives

 

  • Pupils can accept that fate decides whether they are first or last in a speaking exercise.
  • Pupils can conjugate different verbs according to the offered tenses.
  • Pupils can respond to different question according to the wheel of fortune.
