Spinning seems to be the latest craze for 2017 and that is because of the introduction in 2016 of fidget spinners. As soon as fidget spinners were introduced they became popular and today many places on the internet suggest the best fidget spinner to buy and where they can be bought, plus of course, they are available on Amazon. Fidget spinners are devices which with just on finger or certainly only just one hand, can be made to spin at great speeds. These therefore provide people with something to do with their hands rather than tapping their fingers, biting their nails or cracking their bones. All of those activities are thought to allow a person to concentrate better and so the spinners are also thought to allow people to concentrate better, an assumption agreed with by many students that already have the spinners.
Teachers of these students are of a different mind as they think, although they may help a student to concentrate; they also act as a distraction as the users like to see how the spinners are responding to their touch. As yet no real decision has been made as to whether they can be advantageous or a disadvantage to students and so it will be up to individual schools as to whether or not they permit their use in classrooms. Ones solution to this dilemma has been suggested and that is that fidget cubes be allowed in classrooms. A fidget cube works in a similar manner to fidget spinners except due to their design, they are not as distracting to the eye as spinners are.
Although to many these spinners are thought of as toys, some people find that they do in fact help their concentration and so they have bought one to use in their office at work. Obviously now, with kids buying them as toys, students buying them to help with their studies and adults also buying them for use in their office, they have become very popular and look as if they will remain so for at least another year or two yet. They are though just a craze as hula hoops and rubik cubes have been in the past and so, like them, will probably soon fade into obscurity after just a few short years. At this time though they are still the rage with new tricks being shown, using them, appearing on the internet frequently. As to how popular they become in those few short years may depend on the decisions of the schools, as to whether or not they allow them in the classrooms but even if they don’t it would appear that they will acquire quite a bit of popularity especially as they start to feature more and more on the internet. As with everything else though, as there are so many now available, you have to take care in ensuring that the one you buy is the one best suited to your anticipated use of it.
