Creating an Online Calendar
Tech Integration Classroom Project
Subject: Life & Career Skills
Grade Range: 9 - 12
Application: Google Calendar
The process for creating the example project using Google™ Calendar is described below. The Completed Project Movie shows what the finished project might look like. The tutorial movies that follow demonstrate, step-by-step, how to create the example calendar. This project can be easily modified or adapted for other subject areas or other grade/skill levels, by adjusting the amount and type of information to be included on the calendar. Online calendars can be especially useful for collaborative projects between groups of students who are not in close physical proximity to each other. For a complete project description, including goals, objectives, and materials, see the Project Overview.
