Spin the Wheel resources can be used at any time and in many ways, including: 
⦁ To randomly select a student to answer a question, participate in an activity, or perform a task, you can enter the names of your students into the wheel’s sections. Spin the wheel to determine the chosen student, ensuring equal opportunities for everyone in the class.
⦁ To have some control over the topics they study or present, you can create sections on the wheel with different topics or themes. Spin the wheel to assign each student a topic, adding an element of surprise and variety to their assignments or presentations.
⦁ During collaborative projects or activities, the wheel can be used to assign students to different groups randomly. Input the names of the students into the sections, spin the wheel, and form groups based on where it lands. This method helps mix up students and encourages collaboration with different classmates.
⦁ To incorporate the spinning wheel tool into classroom games and quizzes to determine question order, select the next game or activity, or award bonus points. Customizing the wheel with different game or activity options adds an element of excitement and anticipation for students.
⦁ The spinning wheel can be used as a positive reinforcement tool for behaviour management. Assign different rewards or privileges to sections on the wheel and spin it to determine which reward a well-behaved student receives. This approach can motivate students and create a positive classroom environment.
⦁ At the beginning of a class or during transitions, you can use the spinning wheel as an icebreaker or energizer activity. Create sections with fun questions, prompts, or challenges, and spin the wheel to randomly select a student to answer or engage in the activity. This helps break the ice, create a positive atmosphere, and encourage active participation.
Before a session:
⦁ Determine the learning objectives and decide on the specific activity or purpose for which the wheel will be used. 
⦁ Prepare the content for the wheel by creating the options, questions, or tasks that will be included on the wheel slices. 
⦁ Customize the wheel’s appearance and settings, such as the number of slices, colours, and animation duration, to align with the activity and engage the participants. 
⦁ Familiarize yourself with the Spin the Wheel interface and ensure that the necessary devices or equipment are ready for use, whether in-person or in a virtual learning environment.
During the session:
⦁ Start by explaining the purpose of the wheel and what each slice or segment represents. Initiate the spinning of the wheel either yourself or allow students to take turns. As the wheel lands on different segments, use it to drive the activity forward. This might involve answering a question, performing a task, starting a discussion, or reviewing a concept, depending on what you have designated each segment to be. 
⦁ Maintain a lively and engaging atmosphere as students participate in the activity. Facilitate discussions prompted by the wheel’s outcomes and provide guidance as needed. 
⦁ Continuously monitor the progress of the session, making sure that all students are involved and understanding the material. Make sure the “Spin the Wheel” activity aligns with the lesson’s objectives and adapt on-the-fly as necessary to ensure a beneficial learning experience.
After a session: 
⦁ Reflect on the effectiveness of the activity and the engagement of the participants. 
⦁ Assess the impact of the wheel in achieving the intended learning outcomes and consider any adjustments or improvements that can be made for future sessions. 
⦁ Gather feedback from participants to gain insights into their experiences and suggestions for enhancement. 
⦁ Archive or document the wheel and its content for future reference or reuse and share the outcomes or results of the session as appropriate. 
⦁ Use the insights gained from the post-session reflection and feedback to refine future activities and optimize the use of the Spin the Wheel tool for continued interactive and engaging learning experiences.
