Talking Clock App

   
   
Since many of my students with extremely low vision to total blindness need an extended period of time to create their personal organization system, I have found that teaching my secondary students about noticing the passing of time is helpful to develop life and job skills at this age. I do this by placing the FREE Talking Clock app on their iPhones and iPads.  While the talking watches are great, placing a Talk Clock on their tablet or phone integrated their time system into devices they use for a variety of activities. My students and I have noticed the following benefits and limitations to this app:

Benefits:

•It’s free

•It has simple setting features

•There are two different sounds for half hour time and hour times

•Exposes kids to a military clock time

•variety of sounds 

Limitations:

•The sounds can be distracting 

•There are not many custom user settings
