Let tech organize your teaching
By now, many new and veteran teachers are settling into the routine of the new school year, Edutopia reports. Hopefully, the back-to-school anxiety levels have subsided and classrooms are alive with learning. Notice that I said “hopefully.” Speaking as someone who spent nine years in the classroom, this was usually the point in the year where I started to feel unorganized and scattered. I had a plan, scope and sequence, but still felt like my organizational methods were beginning to spiral. This feeling occurred in classrooms where I had technology at my disposal and classrooms where I did not. The combination of feeling like you never have a minute to spare, stacks of papers to grade, parents to attend to, and the ever-constant email slowly taking over your precious free time…all of this can frustrate even the most efficient teacher.
