Making Classrooms More Effective
In a teaching situation, no other tool communicates the concept of elapsed time as well as the Time Timer.
Used as an interactive teaching tool, this classroom-tested teaching aid reinforces the sense of elapsed time
with a graphic depiction of the time remaining.
Other teaching aids emphasize only what time looks like as a static number or a position on a clock face.
The Time Timer can be used to set time limits, measure the duration of activities and train students to make
better use of available time.
Classroom uses include:
Time standardized tests
Monitor math and writing speed tests
Measure study periods and lunch periods
Regulate computer time
Administer duration drills
Show time left to play, get ready or clean up
Meeting Special Needs
Timer Timers are perfect for special needs applications such as students with ADD, ADHD, autism, etc.;
counseling situations; occupational and physical therapy sessions; stroke and brain injury rehabilitation; and geriatric care.
Trainers and special education teachers have proven that Time Timers work in both individual and group situations.
With the Time Timer, users understand the passage of time and can monitor their own activities, improving their self-esteem.
Better time awareness also relieves the stress and anxiety of disorientation.
Special needs uses include:
Timing counseling sessions and exercises
Self-monitoring of activities
Overseeing speech, hearing and vision therapies
Memory prompting for medications, appointments, etc.
