Educational Technology Guy: Google Calendar for Educators

Educational Technology Guy: Google Calendar for Educators | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

From David Andrade

 

Google Calendar is one of Google's many free resources that I use. It has some features that make it very useful.

 

It's accessible on any web browser and integrates and syncs with smartphones, Outlook, Apple iCal and Mozilla Sunbird.

 

I have all of my appointments, due dates, deadlines, etc. on it. I color code them based on school, blog, degree program, meetings, fun, etc. My wife and I share our Google Calendar's with each other so we can easily see each other's schedules. If you use Google Tasks and set a due date for the task, it will show up on your calendar for that day. I also have US holidays and the Yankees schedule on my calendar.

An hour in their shoes: Muscatine teachers participate in poverty simulation | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

description by Middleweb SmartBrief

 

"Educators in an Iowa school district gained a better understanding of the effects of poverty by participating in an hourlong simulation. Teachers received family profiles and resources, then had to navigate the weekly struggles faced by low-income families, such as finding work, child care and other services."

Google Classroom: Video Playlists in a Video Library - Teacher Tech | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
I am so loving this new feature in Google Classroom to “Copy link” to an assignment. One use for the “Copy link” feature is to link to other Google Classroom classes. Let’s say you have a red Google Classroom class for your main announcements and you have a blue Google Classroom class for your resources. You can link students in the red class to the blue class to link them to those resources.
