CTR: “Why we like it: Clean, structured teaching methods come to your iPad’s screen, with this excellent time-telling tutorial that is ideal for early elementary classrooms. The six activities include a Learning Clock (touch to turn the hands) to hear the time read out loud, in either the computer’s voice or your own. A night/day dial helps adds meaning to the abstraction of the clocks. This dynamic linkage between your finger’s movement and the time measurements makes this a strong learning experience. Teacher options let you save progress for different children. You can also record a child’s voice using a well designed sound capture utility.
Need to know: The countdown timer in this app is an ideal classroom utility because it lets you visualize how much time is left. Show it on the big screen to time an activity or game. Teachers will love the individualized record keeping features — you can set up a profile for each student. This app is part of the “Understanding Math” series, from German-based ApppMedia.”
