Like I mentioned earlier, we use Google Calendar a lot to schedule different events at school. Faculty meetings, parents and teacher meetings, school activities and many more. This week as I was digging deeper into Google Calendar, I realized that there are even more we can do with it in my school.
Among the new things that I learned about is, the use of calendar to make lesson plans. This is so useful especially when a teacher is absent, the sub can jump right in and follow the lesson plan with ease. Also excellent for keeping records. I am encouraging the teachers in my school to create this type of calendar and make more use of it.
Another exciting new knowledge about calendar is using it as appointment slots. We use pick-a-time to schedule appointments but Google calendar can also do the same. The only down side is that you have to have a Google account in order to book appointment so we might only use it among our students who already have school Google account and continue with pick-a-time for parents.
I took my Google Calendar test and passed. Tough but very rewarding.
