|“If you have a noisy class, or a noisy activity taking place and you need to get students’ attention in a hurry, this a great way to do it. It always works and the students are shocked enough to stop talking for long enough for you to speak to them. Ensure your speakers are plugged in and the volume is up good and loud. Set the timer for 20 seconds; turn the final whistle on and the alerts off. Click the first green arrow to see the timer, and the second one to start it. Minimise it or just make sure no-one can see your computer screen, then – hey presto – twenty seconds later, you have everybody’s full attention! Genius device, this!”
Louisa Murphy, Dawlish Community College, Devon.
“Teachit Timer really is a powerful tool. Starters and plenaries have now become what they should be. No more does the starter take up half the lesson or is the plenary a hurried exercise shoe-horned into the dying seconds! Teachit Timer is invaluable to managing effectively the progress and development of each lesson.”
John Cundill, South Molton Community College.
