Again in my efforts to go paperless here's an idea to consider using for the new school year...a paperless counselor calendar! I used this paperless calendar idea for part of the year last year to try out and I can happily report that I loved it! Here's how to create your paperless counselor calendar:
-Go to Google and log in (you'll need to have a gmail account to log in)
-Choose the calendar option and you can begin to create your calendars.
|Choose Calendar from Google|
-Click "create" to make your calendars (remember you can make multiple calendars)
What I love about this paperless calendar feature is that you can have multiple calendars all in one place that can be shared and viewed by others (you can still have private calendars too). Work with a team? Then everyone on your team can make a calendar for the team to see (each person's calendar is a different color). My counselor intern and I both have a calendar that we share and post info for the other to see. If I'll be at a meeting, I'll post it on our "shared" calendar together and my intern will see it and vice versa.
|Share your calendar with another counselor/team member|
|Add your Google Calendar to your iPad or smart phone.|
This calendar has been yet another (paperless) success! Do you use Google Calendar for your counselor calendar?
