Online Stop Watch and Definr

I missed you the last few weeks with the Thanksgiving Holiday.
ThumbDriveThursday is back in full swing this week with a couple more outstanding websites to share. They are friendly with the ActivBoard.

The first one is the online stopwatch. You can check it out at

Everybody needs a stopwatch at some point -- and there's never one around!
Well... Now there is! Online Stopwatch!
A Simple, Fast Flash Online Stopwatch and Online Countdown timer always available when you need it.

You can count up and count down. It has an alarm when the designated time is reached. You can do it online or download the application and use it on a mac or pc. You can even add it as a gadget.


The second one is called definr. "The incredibly fast dictionary"

You can open up definr on your activboard. When students need to look up a word, they can look it up using the floating keyboard on the ActivBoard.



See you next week.
