When you are on a tight schedule, it can be very helpful to assist your audience in doing the same. I downloaded a little utility for my computer that puts a countdown clock on the screen. Whenever I have a specific time limit for a group interaction or a break, I throw it up there for participants to see. It is great for students too. Download it at NCrtec Screen Timer.
Here are a few other timers (by Barbara)
- Mobile Timer for PocketPC

- or make your own Countdown Timer in PowerPoint using the directions found at Indezine: Countdown Timer
