Hi there

This is not exactly high priority, but I wonder if you could implement at some point a random selector with a bit more ceremony to it. The current one is perfectly functional, and I use it classroom because I've got the app open anyway. But I've experimented a little bit with this, and in my opinion, students seem to respond better to random selectors if it's more obvious to them that this is what's happening. When I use the random selector from the seating plan, it looks to the student like I have made the choice, leading to the inevitable claims of bias ('god, I KNEW you were going to pick ME, you ALWAYS pick ME' etc....) If I was able to spin my iPad round so they could see the names cycling and perhaps even have one of them tap the screen to stop it, it would be far more ostensibly fairer, and getting them involved in the selection process can help with engagement.
