Classroom Timer Pro
By Walsall Academy
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
A Simple, Fun Timer is designed for teachers - or anyone else who needs to set timed tasks for groups of children in a classroom or similar environment.
This Pro version of this app includes the following features not available on the Lite version:
• To keep things fresh there are 25 Alarm clock / Background theme combinations (with more to come!)
• The app can continue to countdown in the background, so you can switch between applications during the countdown. This is configurable in the apps settings screen.
• No Adverts from third parties.
• Displays the amount of time elapsed on the main app screen, as well as the amount of time left -this can be enabled / disabled from the settings screen.
• Show the actual time on the main app screen - this can be enabled / disabled from the settings screen.
How does it work?
The teacher sets the target amount of time for the class to perform a particular task. The countdown timer is then started. The timer can be viewed from the Apple device itself or displayed on a larger format device such as an interactive board or TV screen using screen mirroring features of the Apple Devices.
If the class completes the task in the defined time limit the teacher can tap the "tick" button and the "Well Done" screen is displayed and a fanfare sound effect is played. However, if the class run out of time the Alarm rings on the clock, the clock bounces around the screen and then explodes in a comic fashion.
This app really encourages students to complete any assigned task, the students can see graphically how much time they have left to complete the task.
The teacher is able to pause, restart and reset the timer at any time. The app has an audible "ticking" sound when the timer is running, the teacher can enable and disable this by simply tapping the speaker button on the apps main screen. The Fanfare and Explosion sound effects can be controlled via the audio controls on the Apple device.
This is a simple but fun and engaging app to assist the teacher in their classroom management activities.
Users are able to send feedback, make enhancement requests or report any issues from inside the app.
What's New in Version 2.2
A timed session has been extended to up to 24 hours!
The "Explosion" effect at the end of the session can now be switched on or off
We have added a "screen mirror" button inside the app so users can easily mirror the screen to a projector, multi-touch panel or MAC/PC screen (Note: This feature uses Apples Airplay Mirroring technology and will require Apple TV or an equivalent App)
We have also made some "under the hood" improvements
Users have direct email access to the developers from inside the app, so please..... if you find any bugs, or can think of any ways in which the app can be improved please get in touch. We would love to hear from you!
