Visual Timers for your iPad Classroom
Here is a selection of timer apps for classroom use, shared from the Apps In Education blog I subscribe to.
VisTimer Free: $1.99
The VisTimer was developed to provide a gentle implementation of time imposed limits. It utilizes an animated shrinking pie chart to depict elapsed time.Visual thinkers often have difficulty conceptualizing time. Being able to see the changing pie chart as time passes makes it easier to understand time.
Visual Time HD: $2.99
Visual Timer HD is a timer which slowly uncovers a stunning photo over time. The time chimes when the time is up. The timer can be set quickly by controlling a slider and/or plus and minus buttons for adding or subtracting minutes and it includes a digital representation of the remaining time.
Visual Countdown Timer: $2.99
A digital timer that shows the elapsed time clearly and is easy to use. You can countdown from any duration. It uses the full screen of the iPhone/iPod touch without any additional clutter while running. It helps to better visualize the concept of time, useful for example during an oral exam or to teach time to kids.
Kiddy Timer: FREE
Kiddy Timer is the perfect time management tool for parents, and teachers to monitor children’s daily activities. This is a beautiful, easy-to-use, functional timer. Simply add child’s photo, name and select up to 4 timers that fit your child’s age and daily schedule.
The Waitstrip provides a concrete visual representation of increments of time, amount of steps to be completed, number of minutes to work, number of math problems to be completed etc. It is a visual guide that allows an individual to remain on task or focused for a duration of time.
Hope you find one that you want to try out!
