How I Use It
Google Calendar allowed me to keep an ongoing calendar for my students that can easily be embedded into a website for easy access and can be added to their mobile devices with an .ical feed. Google Calendar also allowed me to keep the staff that I now work with as a Technology Integration Specialist up-to-date on what I will be doing at anytime and if I am available to them for assistance.
My Take
Google Calendar is a great tool that is free for any Google user to help them keep things organized. It provides the user the ability to create and share multiple calendars for various purposes. The ability to invite individuals to meetings (just as you can with other paid products) helps with scheduling appointments. The ability to sync with devices and have access to calendars from anywhere with an internet connection makes it very easily to stay organized. The ability to no longer sync using Active Sync does however make it harder to syne with some devices.
