What is it

Tic Toc Time by Seven Academy is an app which teaches children more than just to tell the time on a clock.  Children explore different elements of time through a family of beavers.  The app contains information and challenges; children progress through different levels in each area.  There is a restricted parents’ area which allows parents to monitor how children are progressing.

Children learn about points on a compass; the path of the sun and the effect on shadows; how the position of the earth in space is linked to the time of day; the basics of telling the time and telling the time challenges.

What our experts think

We thought that this app was a good; we really liked the way in which it taught children that time is about more than just the hands on a clock. The directions section, where children learn about the points of a compass, links to KS2 Numeracy and Geography objectives; the shadows and the earth in space sections link to the KS2 Science Curriculum; and the telling the time parts, as well as being a life skill, are taught as part of Numeracy.
This is a good app for teaching children about why we have different times of day; the impact of the position of the earth; and, of course, how to tell the time on an analogue clock.

It would be even better if...

We felt it would be better if the times of the clock and the instructions could be clicked on so that children could hear them spoken.
