Two Great Google Calendars for the Classroom

The Google Calendar is a great tool, but somewhat lacking in a few of the educational features from our lesson plan templates.

Now there's TeacherCal and EddyCal to the rescue. TeacherCal is a teacher planning calendar for Google Apps. EddyCal is a similar calendar for students that can be populated by TeacherCal. Both calendars are free!

The teacher signs up with either his/her Google account or an email address. Then he/she can begin to populate the calendar with assignments and test dates.

The teacher gives course follow codes to the students,k who then register for EddyCal, again with their Google account or an email address.

Now Course Plans and Course Messages are populated in one place.
