The Best Online “Countdown” Timers

| 4 Comments

I don’t really use automatic countdown timers that display how many minutes and seconds are left until the end of a class activity. I find that just telling students what time an activity will end (we have a clock on the wall) and then demonstrating some flexibility works well for me, plus I typically want to keep the document camera and computer project available for teachable moments and displaying student work. However, I know some teachers whom I respect really like them.

So, I decided to quickly put together a “The Best….” list of them.

Here are my choices for The Best Online “Countdown” Timers:

Timerrr

Egg Timer

Class Tools Countdown Timer

Online Stopwatch

Time Me

Timer Pop

  1. May I also recommend http://www.ipadstopwatch.com/timer.html it has a very large display so it can be seen from far away. It’s very easy to use, and it even works on devices like the iPad.

  2. I recommend http://countdown.onlineclock.net/
    Mainly because it is free of clutter

  3. I recommend http://www.timerland.net . It’s really easy to use and works in any device. Also its graphics are great. Try it
