Free Printable Year at a Glance Calendars

Scholastic provides a mix of free and paid content that is often quite useful for elementary and middle school teachers. Yesterday, I received an email from Scholastic offering a free Year at a Glance calendar. The calendar is available to anyone in PDF format. To get the calendar, simply click here, download and print.

Applications for Education
As Scholastic points out, the best use of this year at glance calendar is
"for uses such as student birthdays, field trips, guest speakers, assemblies, scheduled assessments, books to read aloud, and project time lines."

Three Student Planners/ Organization Tools

Soshiku is a free personal planner designed for high school and college students. Soshiku lets students organize their assignments by course, add assignments, and receive text message and or email reminders before each assignment is due. Students can add assignments to their calendars directly on the Soshiku website or via text message. Registering and getting started with Soshiku is quick and the user interface is very intuitive and easy to learn.

Deadline is a very simple, yet potentially powerful personal organizer. One feature that really stands out about Deadline is its very user friendly interface. To use Deadline simply sign up with an email account and start using it. When entering task reminders you can time in a day of the week or date in just about any format and Deadline will recognize what you mean. For example, if I entered a reminder for myself to post grades on September 7, Deadline will recognize that as both the date and day of the week. Likewise if I just typed in a deadline of this Sunday, Deadline would recognize the date. Just like any good online personal planner, you can receive email and or mobile reminders of your Deadlines.

Track Class offers all of the features that we have come to expect in online student organizers. Through Track Class students can keep a schedule of courses, track assignment dates, write and save notes, and maintain a calendar of events. Inside Track Class students can also save files like essays they've written and slideshow presentations they've created. Track Class now offers an iPhone App too.

Track Class - Assignment Tracking for Students

Track Class is a relatively new entry into the online student organizer category of free educational resources. Track Class offers all of the features that we have come to expect in online student organizers. Through Track Class students can keep a schedule of courses, track assignment dates, write and save notes, and maintain a calendar of events. Inside Track Class students can also save files like essays they've written and slideshow presentations they've created. One feature that Track Class doesn't appear to offer is a text reminder service like that found on Soshiku.

Applications for Education
Track Class could be a good tool for middle school and high school students looking for an online planner. There are a number of services on the market that aim to help students organize their academic lives. Different organization services may work better for some students than others so it's worth showing students a variety of online planners.

Here are a few other planning tools that students can try:

Deadline Helps You Meet Deadlines

Deadline is a very simple, yet potentially powerful personal organizer. One feature that really stands out about Deadline is its very user friendly interface. To use Deadline simply sign up with an email account and start using it. When entering task reminders you can time in a day of the week or date in just about any format and Deadline will recognize what you mean. For example, when I entered a reminder for myself to post grades on December 7, Deadline recognized that as this Sunday. When I entered a reminder for myself to return essays on Friday, Deadline recognized that as December 5. Just like any good online personal planner, you can receive email and or mobile reminders of your Deadlines.

Applications for Education
Deadline could be a good personal planner for students as it offers just what students need, reminders, and nothing more. The recognition of multiple date input format is convenient for student as it eliminates the possible frustration with other services that may arise from formatting requirements.
