Planboardapp.com




Visit http://www.plannboardapp.com and sign up for a free account. Here you can create and organize your lesson plans in an easy-to-use online format. What is also nice is that you can import files, links, videos (with embed codes), and images. You can also create your own templates for consistent repeated formats. All you have to do is input your new information for each day.

Also, a great value to is is the ability to send your lesson plans. You can provide a direct link to the lesson plan or download it as a PDF file. This could be extremely helpful if you are in an emergency situation with a substitute teacher. It could also be helpful if you are wanting to share a specific lesson with a colleague. There is no need for copying on the copy machine, just send the link.

Standards are easily imported as well since you can click on the standard that aligns with your lesson. By hovering over the standard number, the whole description appears without taking up the entire lesson plan page.

There is a lot to look at when using Planboard. I recommend trying it out to see if it is something that you can use. Yes, I know the video is a little long, but it may save you time from trying to just figure everything out on your own.
