One Minute Countdown

What it is: Another great tool from Triptico, One Minute Countdown is a simple web tool that acts as a countdown timer for the classroom.  The countdown is perfect for using at a center on classroom computers or on an interactive whiteboard/projector. How to integrate One Minute Countdown into the classroom: I find it difficult to give students adequate thinking time after asking a question.  Usually as teachers, we call on the first hand that shoots up.  This can be a hindrance for students who require a little longer to process and think about the question asked.  Use the One Minute Countdown to pace yourself and give students built in time to think.  The One Minute Countdown Timer can also be used for classroom games, or as motivation to move quickly during transitions (see if your students can beat the clock). Tips: You can choose whether or not you want a sound to play when the countdown has finished. Leave a comment and share how you are using One Minute Countdown in your classroom.

Badge

I love this time of year. Everything seems so full of possibility and optimism.  @Mr_Brett_Clark took hold of that feeling and started Education Dreamer: 12 Days of Dreaming.  Today was the big launch!  From Brett: “There is no greater time than now to share our dreams for education. Everything great that has ever happened, started as a dream.
Education Dreamer will post a new post on Monday through Thursday the first three weeks of December beginning December 3rd.
You can support this project by sharing out the post using #12DOD, adding a badge to your website, and leaving comments.”

I fully support this 12 days of dreaming and added my own dreams which were posted on day number one.  Lucky me!

Follow along, dream with your fellow educators and be inspired to make those dreams a reality!

My contribution is called: Dreaming of a Better Education.  Click the link to have a read.

Thank you for including me Brett!  Happy Everything :)
