Time Zones made easy

As someone who has trouble from time to time keeping up with figuring out the time zone difference between different countries when trying to make arrangements for international skype calls I was happy to come across EveryTimeZone – a great interactive online app that provides you with an ‘at a glance’ view of time zones across the world in relation to where you live. It automatically adjusts to the time on your computer – and shows the hours of daylight and darkness. It is also adjusted automatically to the  daylight saving variances in different countries.

In addition to being a useful personal tool, I can see this being an excellent app to use in the classroom – both as a way of learning about time zones, and also for students to use when scheduling their online interactions as a part of global classroom project work.
