Visual timers can be important classroom management tools for students. You can use them to show students the time remaining in an activity, or to challenge them to beat their previous time on a task. They can be used for individual students to help motivate them and keep them focused on a task. These Digital Countdown Video Timers are perfect embedded into your Powerpoints to count down the remaining time in an activity for students. The countdown timers can also be set to launch automatically when you put your Powerpoint in slideshow mode, which makes them perfect to time and signal centers rotations. Or, just launch the video on its own to show students how much time is remaining in an activity.
A video tutorial is included in the preview and the read first file to help you see how to add the video and customize it for your Powerpoint display.
Countdown timers are included for 5 minute intervals from 5 minutes to 60 minutes: 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, 25 minutes, 30 minutes, 35 minutes, 40 minutes, 45 minutes, 50 minutes, 55 minutes, and one hour. Beginning at the 15 minute mark, the timer counts down by seconds. Anything above 15 minutes is a countdown by minute. There are also newly added timers for 1, 2, and 3 minutes for timing classroom transitions.
PLEASE NOTE: These timings are not perfectly precise, especially with the longer lengths of time, and are a few seconds off. While an extra 16 seconds on a 30 minute timer doesn’t make a difference for most classroom needs, these timers SHOULD NOT be used for standardized assessments.
You might also be interested in my Powerpoint Countdown Timers to display the time remaining in a more engaging and interesting way. They feature 16 different timers in 11 different classroom scenes.
