Without my planner, I would be flat out struggling through my day. Without Google Chrome, I’d be drifting out into the sea of difficulties. Today I’m going to share my three most open windows. This is mostly applicable to teachers — but it’s got a few helpful hints.
- Teacherease.com — Teacherease.com is the system we use for attendance and enrollment. This is our third year using it and it gets better each year. It’s relatively easy to use and quite necessary for the school day. If your school is looking into another system, check it out. It’s well-organized and probably inexpensive if my school is using it.
- Gmail — Gmail, for obvious reasons, is so great. I’ve never been more pleased with an email/online organization system. Its ease of use and accessibility are so helpful. I have an Android, so it’s bit easier (and WAY more fun and creative looking) to use on my phone. It’s easy to switch between mail accounts because my school moved to gmail last year. If your school is not using gmail: I highly recommend it. I love the email and…
- Google Drive — It’s like a filing cabinet for the internet. It’s accessible from any computer and it saves Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoints, PDFs, jpgs… you name it. It’s so convenient for my school worksheets because I can create them ONLINE on my laptop and then immediately access them on my desktop to print. I share my Lesson Plans this way, through a shared folder with my Principal. Instead of having faculty meetings as a department, I send shareable documents that we can edit in real time for discussion later. Love, love, love Google drive.
How do you keep your online presence organized?
