This new IWB resource is an update of one of the most used resources on this site. The spinnable IWB clock. Things that were liked about this resource were its rotate the bevel to show the time advancing, giving it a spin to pick a random time and uncluttered display. Things that were not liked were how the hands advanced past midday and the lack of assistance graphics. Hopefully all of these have been put right.
The clock is still controlled by the bevel. One full rotation equates to one full hour. In addition the clock can be toggled between locking to 5 minute intervals or not vie the button with a 5 on it. If this is active the minutes can be toggled to be shown at the end of the minute hand. Minutes can also be toggled to display on the clock face as can the coloured segmented display.
In addition this resource is identical to the new version of the Numeracy Basics clock which is available as an app on the iPad (which is just awaiting Apple approval at the moment). The IWB version will remain free to use. If you have an iPad you may find it useful to be able to do whole class teaching from the whiteboard and then provide individual assistance by using the exact same resource on your iPad. Using it on an iPad may also better suite small group work in rooms where there is no IWB facility.
Note: Flash Player 11 is needed on your PC to run this IWB resource. Older computers may struggle.

If you would like to use this resource on an iPad please see the Numeracy Basics app on app store. You should examine the resource shown to determine whether it would suit your needs on the iPad.
