2013 Edison Award for Innovation Winner (Productivity Category).

Time Timer for iPad is a remarkably easy way to manage time.

The Time Timer for iPad App displays time as a red disk that quietly gets smaller as time elapses. Children as young as three understand that when the red is gone, time is up! And unlike many other visual timers, the Time Timer App has a professional look and packed feature set to help adults make every moment count. Highly recommended by experts in education, healthcare, ADHD, Autism and parenting.

Time Timer – Quick Start
In a hurry? Tap “Quick Start”, touch the number of minutes you need, and press Play! The red disk will count down to 0 and notify you when time is up (even if you’ve left the app). Tap the disk at any time to see a numerical readout of how much time is left.

Play a Timer
1. Select your Timer (up to 4 at a time).
2. Press “Play Timers.” The countdown will start instantly.

Create and Save Timers
When you create a new Time Timer, choose one of three visual modes:
1. Original 60-Minutes Mode: Just like Time Timer products, Minutes mode shows you your time as a portion of 60 minutes, make it easy to see how much time is left.
2. Custom Mode: The Custom Mode Timer can be any amount of time you need – 10 seconds, 10 minutes, 10 hours! Great for interval training.
3. Clock Mode: See what time it will be when your time is up!

Total Flexibility
+ View up to four Timers at once, or tap one Timer to bring it full-screen.
+ Edit one Timer while others keep counting down.
+ Use other apps while your Timer is running. The Time Timer app will notify you when time is up.

Awake Mode
Awake Mode ensures that your iPhone or iPod Touch will not fall asleep while you’re in the Time Timer App. To save battery life, switch Awake Mode Off. On the My Timers page, tap the Settings wheel in the upper-left corner and turn On to Off.

Make Every Moment Count!
Use the Time Timer App in:
+ Business: time your meetings, projects and presentations. Use Clock Mode to see your whole workday!
+ Education: teach a child what “five minutes” looks like. Help older students manage homework & tests without the stress of a numerical countdown.
+ Family: keep the family moving by timing housework, yard work, home work, time-outs and computer/tv time.
+ Healthcare: time your medications and workouts! Comfort a child during a medical procedure by showing how much time is left.
+ Special Needs: discover the profound impact that the Time Timer can have on ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia and diverse special needs.
+ Life: beat the clock! Motivate yourself to keep going until the red disk is gone and time is up!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, October 31, 2013 11:06 AM

"Students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder have a wide variety of strengths and abilities that make their communication and learning skills complex, diverse and sometimes challenging. Many of their difficulties can be broken into the areas of Communication, Social Skills and Behaviour. We know that students with Autism are strong visual learners, which makes the iPad a perfect instructional tool to support communication, social skills development and positive behaviour."

 

The Spectronics team has done an outstanding job in compiling resources, apps and information on ways to support autistic learners in the areas of Communication, Social Skills and Behaviour.

 

Many thanks to Spectronics and the amazing work that they do to support all learners!

The folloing list of applications provide opportunities for autistic students to apply practical skills and process technologies and resources to meet current and future needs (ACARA, 2013). These skills include developing 21st century life skills such as communication.

iModeling Boundaries App - A Contact and Relationship Model

The iModeling Boundaries™ app teaches a child the boundaries of touch. It uses photos (uploaded by the parent/carer) of people involved in the child’s life. The child sorts these photos into groups. Each group has a specific relationship (e.g. family and friends) and a specific kind of touch (hugs and kisses) designated to it.

 

This sorting process needs to be guided by the parent/carer of the child. The iModeling Boundaries™ app gives the parent/carer the tool to start the conversation around the boundaries of touch and relationships.

 

The iModeling Boundaries™ app combines two current models of safe-touch; the contact model, which focuses on the types of contact you might have, and the relationship model, which focuses on the type of relationships you engage in. We call the iModeling Boundaries™ app a contact and relationship model."
