Countdown Clocks, Pro And Con

There are countdown clocks everywhere, including in a lot of classrooms I've been in recently.  But do you like them or not?  They're used to help teachers keep things moving and to help students know how much time they have left but can make things seem rushed or stressed (at least to me). This Nick Paumgarten Talk of the Town columnlaments their overuse and suggests that there's something being lost.  What do you think?  [Cross-posted from TWIE]
