How Visual Learners Can Benefit From Time Timer

Posted by Christen Barbercheck on


Are you a visual learner?  

Research suggests that around 65% of the human population are visual learners.  

There are a wide variety of strategies available for helping classrooms become more inclusive 

One such method for increasing inclusivity in the classroom is by implementing a Time Timer product 


Time Timer Is a Success in the World of Education  

We here at Time Timer are proud that our products have been proven through rigorous methods of research to improve the classroom experience for children of many ages and abilities 

For instance, our Time Timer timers have been proven to increase self-regulation. We are also proud to announce that Time Timer was mentioned in the 5th edition of Pearson’s textbook The Inclusive Classroom: Strategies for Effective Differentiated Instruction 

So, what is it about the Time Timer that makes it such a great fit for visual learners?  


The Original Time Timer Was Made for Visual Teaching 

Jan Rogers, founder of Time Timer, invented the original Time Timer Original visual timer over 25 years ago. The original purpose was to teach the concept of time to a visual learner.  

The story goes that Jan Rogers’ youngest child was having trouble grasping the concept of time. This made transitioning from one daily routine to another quite difficult. Homework, school, practice, and bedtime all became sources of frustration because the child struggled to understand the concept of elapsing time.  

Jan Rogers’ solution was the simple, patented red disk that shows the elapsing of time in an immediate, visual countdown. When the child could see time go by in an easy-to-grasp image, then things went much more smoothly in the daily schedule.  

Flash forward over 25 years, and visual learners everywhere are finding tasks at home or in school are stress-free when a Time Timer product is included.  


Time Timer Originals: A Great Timer for All Visual Learners 

Our Time Timer Original models come in three different sizes, each of which is fit for different classroom needs.  

The first, the Time Timer Original 3”, is best for one-on-one teaching or individual workspaces. Having this available for a visual learner during tutoring time can help improve time management skills. A visual learner can also benefit from having one of these at home, to help manage homework time and studying.  

The Time Timer Original 8” is better for smaller classrooms and small group activities. The magnetic back offers multi-purpose uses, such as attaching it to a whiteboard or file cabinet.  

When you are teaching a bigger classroom and want the whole class to get a sense of elapsing time, then go for the Time Timer Original 12”. This is perfect for when the class is taking a class or there is a time-sensitive class activity where everyone can get a quick look at the countdown.
