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.

Nice- I use
which is an Apple dashboard widget. I like it particularly as you can specify the cities that you collaborate with most often.
yep – really like that one too, Allanah, I have it installed on my dashboard 🙂
