Big Ideas About Technology & Learning: 5 Ways To Use Google Calendar

Google Docs (see overview) is an application that allows users to create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with all school stakeholders (students, parents, faculty & staff, administration, board, and community).

Google Forms is an application that allows users to create forms (interactive documents that facilitate data collection). All data entered into the form is automatically entered into a downloadable spreadsheet!

Google Calendar is an application that facilitates the efficient managing and sharing of events. Imagine being able to easily manage the following scheduling tasks ...

  1. Shared School Calendars. Create district, testing, grade level, and leadership calendars - and share them all with appropriate stakeholders.
  2. Check-Out Calendars. Manage your school's shared resources like field trip vans, media center equipment (books, projectors, computers, cameras, etc). Know who has what at all times!
  3. Standards Mapping. Teachers with common subjects can all align their course standards with projected dates of completion..
  4. Pacing Guides. Teachers with common subjects can stay abreast of each team members' pace with respect to completing their standards maps.
  5. Using Appointment Slots for Office Hours. Administrative staff will especially find it handy to allow the efficient scheduling of appointments during designated office hours.
