New Google Calendar Tops the Cake!

As an Educator using a shared Google Calendar may be an efficient “Timesaver” to use in collaboration with colleagues and students. My reasoning is due to every-time the calendar is updated it appears instantly in realtime on a colleagues or students shared calendar. This means nobodies email box has to be inundated with emails & attachments. All worksheets may be attached in a calendar event along with other classroom information. The list feature in the new calendar event editor allows one to organize a “To Do” or “Event List” filled with classroom information.

As an extra bonus a single event may be shared with absent students. If the teacher doesn’t want to share the original event it is easy to duplicate an event to share. The teacher may send a notification email when a new event is shared with a student. This will alert the student there is new event to add to their default calendar. These are just some “Small Possibilities” of how the New Calendar may help both teachers and students save a bit of time within a busy productive day!
