How to

http://teaching.mrbelshaw.co.uk/index.php/2007/01/04/the-wonders-of-google-calendar-for-teachers/

http://teaching.mrbelshaw.co.uk/index.php/2007/02/17/how-to-use-google-calendar-as-a-tool-for-lesson-planning/

"f you use an Interactive Whiteboard or projector and don’t want students to see your calendar/planning projected, simply press the ‘freeze’ button on your projector’s remote control. I use this at the beginning of lessons so that they see the title and objective of the lesson whilst I’m quickly reminding myself of what we’re doing that lesson!"

Management Tip

Dragging events

"If Tuesday’s lab takes longer than I expect, I can drag the next activity over to Wednesday. No more erasing and recopying. In the description field I can put notes about the on-the-fly changes I made to the activity."

Having a separate calendar for school holidays

 

 

Having a separate calendar for students due dates

"Next, I created another calendar, this one listing all the due dates for my students. This can be linked to my blog or my website, and I can print it out to give to students in class. What makes this function even more handy is that, if I view the two calendars together - planning and due dates - it makes it easier and more visually understandable for me to see my lesson plans alongside the corresponding due dates."

Using a double star system

"I use a ‘double-star system’ (see screenshot below). Before a lesson has been planned it has two asterisk after it. Removing one star means that I’ve entered the title and lesson objective (and homework, if applicable). Removing the second star means that the lesson is fully planned."
