    Teaching times and dates

    Afternoon - bit random this... Has anyone come across any software installed on their network for teaching kids to tell the time/date, read a calendar, match 24hr with 12hr clock etc? Possibly one for the primary IT staff although this is intended for a pupil with specific needs in a SEN school... Any ideas much appreciated I've found some of greyolltwit.com's freeware which is a start for the times part but I could do with something nice for the date/calendar side of things.

    Cheers!

    Hey mate,

    Although a pretty awful piece of software aesthetically, Number Shark was the software of choice a couple of years ago for Math related SEN ICT provision. I had a group in the suite working on the time specific section and it was quite successful, the repetition aided retention.
    If I'm honest I can't think of any other software titles that I have used. Sherston always seem to put in a good showing for SEN though.

    Thanks for that - we do have Number Shark here, never thought to look on that for anything date/time related. Not sure if it's actually working at the moment (or ever was properly) but at least I have a reason to fix it rather than just swear at it now

    We use a programme here called Talking Clocks, it is by topologika

    Talking Clocks PLUS - helping pupils tell the time

    It seems to do the job and I think the teachers quite like it.

    We also use Talking Clocks from Topologica. Includes digital and analogue clocks, which is useful. Not sure about the dates bit though.
