Planbookedu: Plan for tomorrow, today!
When traditional paper and pencil plan books just doesn’t cut the mustard, try Planbookedu. Free or with a year-long subscription.I’ve been teaching for 17 years. Truth be told, I like the feel of a regular, old paper plan book in my hands. I enjoy it when my finger slides across the pages and I’m able to flip to future or past weeks. It is lovely. Still, the traditional system is outdated, more often than not, my meticulously written schedule is derailed by rainy days, teachable moments, and unforeseen obstacles OR, I just change my mind and decide to go in a different direction than I first thought.
My Favorite Features of Planbookedu:
Prints out without funky formatting issues or go paperless.
Pre-plan the entire year by creating one week and pushing copies into the rest of the year.
Links to videos, and documents is fairly easy.
Access the plan book on devices that can access the internet or
Push the titles of lessons onto your current Google calendar.
Add collaborators or share your plans without formatting issues.If you want to see mine, just let me know and I’m happy to share it.
Planbookedu.com is super user friendly and does not require a huge learning curve. Make it a site purchase and get a considerable discount.
Drawbacks: You could always make a google doc but that takes a considerable amount of time and requires you to do all the copying and pasting as well as updating the dates. Also, sharing your plan book is free but collaboration costs money. There is a free trial period though. Sign up and try it for free today. It has strengthened teaming and ease of collaboration at my grade level.
