Planning with Google Calendar: A Step-by-Step Tutorial

If you're here, you may be seeking out a better way to lesson plan. Well I've got something for you that I have been using for a few years now that I love! 


Google Calendar is such an easy-to-use platform for keeping yourself organized, and I already had been using it for a while for personal things, so why not try it out for lesson planning? It is so simple, easily accessible, and visually appealing. I want to show you exactly how you can get started with setting up your Google Calendar lesson plans.

Besides meeting you at Starbucks with our laptops and a chai latte, the next easiest way to walk you through setting this up is with Screencastify. With that tool, I'm able to record myself talking while it records everything I do on my computer screen. Then it saves to a video on my Google Drive, and voila! You can watch it over and over again and learn exactly how to Google lesson plan.

The videos are in two parts (I am limited to 10-minute videos with the free version of Screencastify), so click on the videos below to watch this step-by-step tutorial. 

Part 1

Part 2

Just an FYI: You will need a Google account (like Gmail) to create a Google account. If you don't have one already, what are you waiting for? I love all the awesome Google apps and how everything is linked together!

How do you see yourself using this tool? Let me know and feel free to ask any questions you may have!
