GMAIL & CALENDAR TASK LISTS for STUDENTS

I’m not the most organized person and this lead me to explore a variety of GAfE (Google APPS for Education) features to overcome my organizational problems. Recently I discovered the Task List built into both GMAIL and Google Calendar.  Task Lists are simply To-Do Lists which can be found in a separate pane inside of both Google Calendar and GMAIL.  Tasks Lists are easy to use and access as both a To-Do List or Organization List.

OPENING A TASK LIST IN GMAIL

  • Click the mail dropdown arrow to open the menu
  • Scroll down to tasks and click
  • A Task List Pane will Open in the Lower Righthand Corner

HOW STUDENTS CAN USE TASK LISTS

    • Checks will cross the HW off the list
