Simple Timer Solution

Need to focus that student who gazes around the room for 4 of the 5 minutes designated for an activity?
Need a timer everyone can see?
Need to limit your computer time for a more balanced life?

Check out http://e.ggtimer.com/ for an easy to use, highly visible, online timer.

Type in the amount of time (3 hours, 10 minutes, 5 weeks 2 days 4 hours 6 minutes 7 seconds, etc.) and click Go.
Your computer screen begins the count down. with a clear display of the remaining time as well as a page border that fills across the screen as the last minutes tick away or..
track the time on a browser tab in IE 7 as you access other websites. This is a fun tool that has no fear factor.

For more discoveries, visit the NCTIES section of our wsfcswiki and browse through our conference notes. Set the timer so you don't stay too long. We've posted lots of links for you to explore.

I recently found another online timer that has several different options (and looks).
