Timers are powerful. Whether you use them to let students know how much more time before you are going to pick up a warm-up/bell ringer, to indicate station or lab rotations, or just to overall facilitate transitions---timers help keep everything moving along. They can also be motivating for students to stay on track.
Did you know there is a quick and easy way to pull up a timer whenever you want?
1. In Google Chrome, in the omnibox (that's the bar where you also type in web addresses), just type "Timer 2 Minutes" and it will immediately pull up a timer that starts counting down right away!
2. Several timer Chrome extensions that you can get by just clicking "Apps" in Chrome and then visiting the "Web Store" (see screenshot below). Then they will just be added to your Chrome browser! Here are a few great ones (make sure you are checking under extensions):
-"Timer" by Kuba - Really quick and simple interface.
- "1 Click Timer" - This one plays nice music when time runs up that you can customize.
