The Spinner in LessonUp is primarily intended as a name-picker. The students' names appear automatically in the Spinner during a lesson after entering the PIN code.

However, instead of students' names you can also place terms in the Spinner. This creates fun work-shapes for both synchronous as shared lessons.

To activate terms in the Spinner, first add a spinner using the +Component button, and then Spinner.

Double-click on the Spinner or on the settings button to go to the settings. Put a check mark in front of Use terms instead of student names. You can now enter the terms/phrases separated by a comma. The Spinner can be used in class or at home.

Of course you can also use this option to fix the names of the students if you do not want to or cannot use devices in the classroom.
Another option is to use the Spinner to show the answers to a question. The students have to come up with the question themselves.
