How I Use It
My school is a participant in Google Apps for Education, so all of our students have gmail accounts and access to calendars. I use the calendar program to create assignment and event calendars for my classes. Students can then add the calendars to their gmail accounts to aid in managing assignments, assessments, and other important information. They may import multiple calendars allowing them to see all of the work for their classes in one place easily.
My Take
Google Calendars can be extremely helpful in teaching student to organize their work load, plan ahead for project deadlines, and juggle a busy academic schedule. This is particularly useful for Middle- and High-Schoolers as they begin taking multiple classes.
