This week: Heading back to school with organization in mind

After a season away from the classroom, many of us are brimming with ideas and plans for a new school year. Start the learning year off by setting up a few simple productivity tools; each listed below can be operational for you and your students in under 15 minutes. Investing time now will save you photocopying notices, bookmarking websites on student machines and tracking down little yellow notes that have fallen off your "to do" list -- and give you more time to enjoy your new community of learners!
