Did you know that students have their own tech tips page? I also maintain a Google Classroom page for them, and send out weekly tips they might like. If you want to receive these tips too, please feel free to join their Classroom page! (Join code: 7xykjq3) The info is mostly different than what I share here. For example, below is a tip I sent them yesterday. Feel free to sign up!
This one goes out to the people who like pretty, shiny paper products. If you’re a visual person, here are two calendar options you may enjoy:
The first, Artful Agenda, looks like your typical whimsical planner, but it’s on your computer (or phone) and integrates with Google Drive. What I like about it are the to-do lists, the drag-and-drop feature for appointments or tasks, and (look, I’m baring my soul here) the stickers. It does cost money, and there are no plans to make it free for students, but I have a referral code? The web version works great, or there’s an iPhone app, too. (Android coming soon.)
The second, Palu, doesn’t have a lot of information available, but it’s a calendar app that allows you to type OR draw. I downloaded it in December, and use it to track things with just colorful symbols that I sketch with my non-artistic claws, but I really like it. (What am I tracking? DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT.) This one is free!
