Google Calendar Training

Google calendar training took place this week, just wondering if teachers and administrations would like to share how they are see using google calendars. I believe we learn from each other, so if we share effective ways to use google calendars, we may stimulate more uses for all.
Some ways I'm using google calendars is posting my calendar on my website so teachers are able to see if I'm available to help them with their instruction. I've linked my calendar to my phone so I get reminders of all appointments which makes me very organized and well prepared for each appointment. I especially like the option of attachments so I can link a document to an event, I can see this as a very effective way to keep parents informed on assignments for students.

MHS Integrating Technology

MHS is rolling out new Macbooks to all teachers, and training staff and students on the uses of Google App Accounts. I look forward to all the uses staff and students will find and incorporate into student learning. I will be featuring ways the staff are incorporating the technology into their classrooms and affecting student achievement.
