Have you had your classroom updated with a giant flat screen linked with cable, AppleTV and document camera peripherals? If not, it’s coming soon to a classroom near you…. Meanwhile, I noticed that many of the recent installations were placed front and center of the room which blocked our 20th century analog clocks. We all rely on clocks to stay on schedule and not being able to see what time it is can be problematic.
The Feel Clock by Codsworks is available in iTunes for a free download. The clock changes from day to night and has a built in quiz for learning how to read the time. I use it on my iPad and project it on the big screen throughout the day. My students, are now learning how to tell time and anticipate recess and lunch schedules without having to ask me, “How much longer until lunch?” Being able to determine elapsed time and scheduling reduces anxiety and helps all students learn how to keep on track.
