How I Use It
My students loved this app. We used this during the daily morning calendar routine in which the helper of the day got to guide the class through a few time-telling rounds. They basically learned to tell time both digitally and analog over the course of the school year by working 5 minutes a day on the Smart Board with this tool.
My Take
I liked this product much better with the whole class than for individual work. As individuals, the novelty wore off quick and the teacher had to set the settings/levels per student; however, if they had to watch and wait their turn for a few days, they stayed engaged and I was able to painlessly change the learning level only as we progressed as a whole group.
