Clockoo

The “Clockoo” game helps children practice setting the time on an analog clock, i.e. by moving the hands of a clock, as well as understand the relationship between digital and analogue clocks.

Children need to set the clock to a given time by making circular hand movements, i.e. by controlling the hour and/or minute hands.

The teacher/therapist has complete control of whether the child will set the time by moving one or both hands of the clock. By choosing the analogue display, the child is asked to recognize the time which is displayed on an analogue clock which appears at the side and set that time at the main analogue clock by picking and rotating the appropriate hand(s). Also, the teacher/therapist can pick out the time interval (Half Hour, Quarterly, etc.) on which the child would like to work as well as ask a child to explore the relationship among digital and analogue clocks.

There is a cuckoo that checks if an answer is right or wrong. The teacher can also activate timer and lives to make the game more challenging.

Are you ready to set the time and hear the cuckoo congratulate you?

  • Off

I CAN adjust the hour & the minute hand to set the time in a clock that reacts like a real clock.

Reports

Pie chart data

·      This shows statistics of how many times the student gave correct, wrong or no answers and how many times the student tried to find the correct answers

The Time is shown on the top right corner. The teacher can use the time to tell whether the task is challenging enough for the students.

Table data

·      This shows the time a student takes to complete a question. The student spent the longest time to complete 05:30 (10.8 s).

This data can reveal certain patterns that the students are struggling with.

·      This shows the time per question in details. The time period is shown on the right and the task that the student completed is also displayed. In this case, the student worked on 02:00 and got it correct in 15s.
