Now that students are 1:1, they should start keeping their to do’s, schedules, and reminders all in the cloud. Google Calendar and Tasks are the perfect solution!

Google Calendar and Tasks as an Online Planner

Here are a few tips on transitioning into Google Tasks and Calendar.

  1. Keep all your test dates, due dates and sports/hobbies in Google Calendar.   Google Calendar gives you a variety of views to see your events at a glance.
  2. Keep all your nightly homework to-do’s in Google Tasks.  These are things that you can check off.
  3. THINK - do you want to set your Google Task on the date that you are going to do the homework or on the date that the homework is due.  Tasks will show in your Google Calendar - on the Due Date you set in the advanced settings.  Make sure to be consistent with how you add your homework so you know when to complete it.
  4. Set your new tab page to your task list by using the Chrome extension New Tab to Tasks.  This way you are always just a control + T away from writing down your to-do’s or crossing off homework!

It’s time to bring your homework and to-do’s into the digital age!

Now get back to crossing off those tasks!
