Discussion for Telling the Time: Multiple Choice Quizzes

Quality of Content
This software presents valid concepts, models and skills that students in elementary school need to learn. For some students, learning to tell time and then practicing it, is difficult especially in a digital world. The value of learning to tell time on an analog clock is priceless.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching-Learning Tool
This material can be used for practice- and allows for teachers or students to set it up according to their ability level (which is a plus). Students should be able to tell time- analog to digital- and vice versa. This will simply reinforce the material at their level. Students will also be practicing telling time with words. For example: "a quarter to 8" might be written at the top, then students will find the digital clock with 7:45 on it. I have found this material useful for reinforcing the important skill of telling time.
Ease of Use
Students can access this from school and or home and have parents help them as well. The only thing that is confusing is at the beginning when you have to set up your "character." I also think the buttons to get started should be larger and more appealing to young children who are using this program.
