I said I’d post a few thoughts on Planboard when I got the chance, and I’d used it for a while, so here they are.
Firstly, it completely suits the way my brain works. When I’m planning lessons, little bits of pieces of ideas will pop into my head at random times. Planboard is really good for this and it even has an iOS app so I can jot down a note when I’m in Sainsbury’s. The great thing is, that no matter where I access my planning I have the exact same version of the document.
It’s also really delightful to be able to attach documents to my plan, so everything is one place and easy to find. It also means that if I’m doing something at home or at the weekend, I can quickly attach it to Planboard and not have to email it to myself. I can also add links into my plan really easily.
I’ve always found paper planners difficult. I lose them, I forget to take them home, I can’t easily add locations and resources. I don’t think I’m overstating it to say that I’ve never been more organised and it’s really helped me this year.
I suggest you try it. Also, it’s free!
