How to Mix Privacy Settings on Google Calendar - And a Handful of Other Google Calendar Tutorials

This afternoon I facilitated a short workshop on using Google Calendar in school settings. One of the things that I shared in that workshop was the idea of putting lesson outlines in calendar events then making the calendar public so that parents could see what was happening in your classroom. Someone in that workshop raised the question of what to do if there is a calendar event that you don't want to make public. The answer to that is to mark specific events as private events within a public calendar. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to do that.

The following tutorials can help you get the most out of using Google Calendar.
