TeacherTime: An App for Timing
Summary : An Easy-To-Use Timer
TeacherTimer is a digital timer designed for classroom use. After launching the app, teachers set the length of time they want to track, and they can also set green, amber, and red warnings. When ready, users tap the “Start” button, which takes them to a new screen and begins the timer. While the timer is running, users can tap the “Record Voice” button to record themselves talking. When they are finished, users must tap the “Stop Recording” button. They can then hear their voice by tapping the play recording. To return to the app’s main screen and start a new timer, users must tap the “Stop” button.
- Teachers can assign students work to complete and allocate a specific amount of time for them to complete their work. As students begin their work, the teacher can connect their iPad to a projector and set the timer. This way, students will be able to track and manage their time.
- During a “station rotation” lesson, teachers can connect their iPad to a projector and use this app to show students how long they have remaining at a station. When the timer’s bell dings, students are to rotate.
- When conducting a mini-lesson or lecturing, teachers can use the timer in this app to keep track of the time they have been using.
