For high school students, the short break in between classes is no relaxing matter. They have only a few minutes to get from one classroom to the next. If a student needs to pick up their books for the next class and must stop at their locker, this makes the trip even more challenging. Those few minutes in between classes can get hectic with hundreds of students flooding the hallways sharing the common goal of reaching their next destination on time. Most students are even unaware of how much time they have to reach their next class due to the discrepancy between the times their watch or cell phones display and the time the school clocks display.
A synchronized time keeping system can make the trip between classes more efficient for both teachers and students. If the time displayed on the school’s clocks is extremely accurate, then this time discrepancy will have less of an impact of a high school’s overall schedule. Upon eliminating this time dissimilarity, the amount of students late for class can go down and the overall amount of students who are penalized for nocuous activity can go down as well.
Sapling’s master clock can receive accurate time from any NTP server or GPS satellite. Another feature that Sapling’s master clock comes with is the ability to display a countdown in between classes for the roaming students. While the classes of a high school are switching, the time on the clocks will display a countdown on the display instead of the time. This will let student know exactly how long they have to get from one class to another.
Punctual students make it easier for the teachers of the high school to get through their entire lesson plan. They can start their lessons without being interrupted and they do not have to punish the student(s) for being late. With the assistance of The Sapling Company and the addition of their synchronized clock systems, both teachers and students will have a less hectic day.
