Getting back at it with @Planboard this year. I love that you can add curricular outcomes, personalize your timetable, and plan on the go. Serious game changer for me and has helped me get to know my outcomes that much better. Best part? ITS FREE! pic.twitter.com/gSIpVZWc4K

Seriously, @Planboard is awesome. If you’re planning for the new year & looking for digital option, check it out! I’ve imported CSTA standards, attached files/videos, organized lessons to view full units, & can easily access prior year plans. Support was super quick too. Love it! pic.twitter.com/hWuU09cb6T

I just had the best conversation with some of the @Planboard team. I thought it would be an all-technical call and they asked about my planning process, struggles, successes instead. I’m focusing on fixing a button and they’re focusing on improving planning altogether. Awesome!

I do love @Planboard. I have a planner that is paper that I get the basics in, the lists, etc. I use my online Planboard to get all my links, documents, etc in one spot. Love how quickly I can access everything. The paper is sketch and Planboard is the complete picture. #6thchat

Starting using Planboard today for lesson planning am absolutely loving it! It keeps track of what Number Day it is, lets me “push” the schedule when I want to add something in that I haven’t done before, and I can attach the files that I need for that lesson day. @Planboard
