Internet WebTimers and self reflection

The Web Timer app extension to Chrome, is a great but simple tool to help both students and teachers reflect on how they use their time online. The extension sits directly in the browser so is just a click away and an excellent tool to help students take ownership of how they manage their time. The simple pie graph has three different settings; todays time, average time and total. My breakdown is a little depressing and highlights how much time I spend on GMail and Google Docs.

The app does not track activity in other programs such as Skype or games and only measure activity in the current tab or window and Other programs such as RescueTime Lite track more activity including uses of different applications.
