Learning about time management that week made me realize the importance of time managing college schedule and other events that you might know. Not having a good time management skill will lead to terrible things, time will always catch up to you and you will fall behind. Time management becomes really helpful when you become very active in different kind of activities. Our project #2 for COLS, helped me alot to organize my thoughts and it helped me to remember stuff that maybe I forgot. Since, I made a google calendar for my project, everything transferred to my Iphone calendar. Everytime an assignment is due, I will always get a notification for all my classes which was crazy helpful. Writing down the dates and events on the calendar helped me remember what things are on which day. By making the schedule ahead of time, it made me prepared for anything. The calendar helped me reduce my tension for college jumpstart classes and other classes. I like doing the google calendar so much that I decided to make another calendar for the next semester

    With students I use Google classroom almost daily to weekly. I started using this tool a couple years ago and have fallen in love with the capabilities and the fact that everything is conveniently located for students. My students are very familiar with logging on and going straight to classroom to find links to other websites, videos, announcements, writing assignments, and Google forms for assessments. With the Google forms and sheet I also use an “add-on” called Flubaroo that automatically grades the form for the teacher in a matter of seconds when asking multiple choice questions. This is often how I do formative assessments so that students who are not getting something can be easily identified and I can form groups immediately to…
