Goodbye 2021, Hello 2022!

As the Chalk team rings in the new year, we wanted to take a moment and look back on all the big milestones we’ve experienced in 2021.

We also wanted to take a moment to thank you! We appreciate the ongoing support of each and every member of the Chalk community. Thank you for joining our webinars, helping us make Chalk better, and connecting with us on social media.

Resources and Professional Development

Not only do we strive to bring you the best solutions for your curriculum mapping and lesson planning needs, but we also bring great resources and professional development opportunities to teachers and schools around the world!

In 2021, we published 16 articles covering important topics in education. From Bloom’s Taxonomy and essential questions to gamification and climate change, these articles covered trends and shared tips to help educators and administrators deliver the best learning experiences to their students. You can read all of the articles we’ve published in 2021 here.

We delivered 14 webinars in 2021! By partnering with Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Dr. Marie Hubley Alcock, and other experts, we had great professional development sessions on curriculum mapping and lesson planning. Our team also presented helpful webinars to help you unlock your full planning potential with Planboard and Markboard. You can watch all of our webinars here.

Hosted by The EduTech Guys, we presented a five-part podcast series where curriculum leaders, school administrators, and leading K-12 authors discussed the important elements of an effective, contemporary curriculum. Guests discussed curriculum mapping strategies, lesson planning for in-person and remote environments, and more. You can listen to the podcast series here.

We also published an eBook this past year, Curriculum Mapping and Lesson Planning with Google. This eBook covers how the various Google apps can be used for curriculum mapping or lesson planning and how Chalk integrates with those apps for an even better experience. You can read the eBook here.

Helping Our Community

Chalk users were busy in 2021! With more than 12 million lessons planned, just think of all the trees that were saved by using a digital lesson planner.

Sharing is caring, a fact educators know so well. More than 85 thousand lessons shared and 41 thousand lessons imported in 2021.

The Chalk team was also busy making our services better than ever for our hard-working users. We added more than 25 new features in 2021, including a Google Calendar Integration and math equation editor (the most-requested feature by teachers in Planboard!).

Get Ready for 2022
