Free Technology for Teachers: Timer Pop - A Handy Classroom Timer | Im Going To Be A Librarian One Day | Scoop.it

"I've written about a bunch of timer websites and apps in the past (here's a list of five). Today, I found another nice timer tool that teachers may find handy. Timer Pop allows you to create and save multiple timer settings. For example, if I want to have a count down that lasts for five minutes, a count down of fifteen minutes, and a count down of three minutes I can save them all. Then when I need one of them I'll just click on it to start the count down. "
