A Simple Fun Class Timer, designed for teachers, or anyone else who needs to set timed tasks for groups of children in a classroom or similar environment.
The engaging graphics and sound effects mean tasks get completed in a fun and efficient way. 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.
