If This Then That is a helpful website that I learned about from Kern Kelley during a Google+ Hangout last night. If This Then That helps you automate tasks like saving your Pinterest pins to your Evernote account, set text alerts for Google Calendar events, and sending email attachments directly to your Dropbox account. There are thousands of formulas, recipes is what IFTTT calls them, available in the gallery of recipes. The recipes are all contributed by the community of IFTTT members and you can contribute too.

I don't know of any teachers who couldn't use a little more time in their days. If This Then That won't give you more time in the day, but the recipes could help you automate some tasks and free up time for other things in your day.
