Our administrators are going to use it at our monthly staff meetings to recognize one teacher who is having a birthday that month. Each spin will have a price. Examples: breakfast, lunch, duty coverage, etc. 

At the bottom of the Homepage is some information. Here are some excerpts (be sure to check out 'Education' at the bottom):
Wheel Decide is a free online spinner tool that allows you to create your own digital wheels for decision making, prize giveaways, raffles, games, and more. Browse through our wheels and spin to randomize your life and make the decisions that have no wrong answers.

Sometimes a simple coin flip is all you need to make a decision, but a coin only has two sides. With Wheel Decide, you can flip a coin with 100 sides. You try and perceive that!
Settle disputes between friends, coworkers, and family members on decisions like where to go to lunch, what movie to watch, or what to do.
Even for those of you who don’t take kindly to advice from “them wheel types,” you’ll often notice your true desires become apparent as the wheel is spinning.

Let the wheel decide. Save your energy for the big decisions

Pick a random student in class to answer a question or participate in a classroom activity. That’s right—you in the back, Jimmy!
Spin a wheel of questions, topics, or vocabulary terms. This is a great substitute for studying with flash cards, and since the topics shuffle, everyone stays on their toes.
Use the wheel to randomly assign groups or teams. You can also randomly assign jobs to teams or individuals. Unlike you or your peers, Wheel Decide has no biases."

Thanks to Mr. Livengood and Ms. Kicinski for sharing this great idea!
