Tick, tick, tick… BOOM!

TimerDo you use timers in class? Many of us do, for a number of reasons:

  • Time management
  • Competitions
  • Setting strict timing conditions
  • Exams
  • Reproducing ‘real-life’ stress 🙂
  • and more!

Online Stopwatch (http://www.online-stopwatch.com) is a collection of timers you can use either online or download (as an .exe program or a flash .swf). They work great with a projector and a screen.
