The goal is to make teachers aware of an online tool called ‘Planboard’ by Chalk . This free online tool has made it possible for me to stay on top of my lesson planning which has made me a more efficient and thoughtful teacher. During my session, teachers will become familiar with this tool and its capabilities (linking to Google Drive Documents, sharing with colleagues)
Participants will be signing into planboard.chalk.com and setting up their digital planbook. Together I will show them how to set up their classes as well as get started with this tool. They will learn the different ways in which this can be used to organize their lesson plans and how they can transfer these plans to the following school year.
