School Tools / Time Hacks to Keep Educators Happy

author avatar

    School Culture
      Check out the blog of The Together Group consulting team, which trains teachers and school leaders to organize around a few key priorities and use their scant time more efficiently—so they can pursue their passions without running out of energy or morale. Many of the blog posts come from practicing educators who've tried the consultancy's workshops or strategies. Sample ideas highlighted on the blog include:
      • A section in one principal's planner for notes from "Unplanned Meetings" (those times, say, when teachers drop by to brainstorm or a parent stops this leader in the hall for a crucial conversation).
      • Color-coded files and a large bulletin board that transformed a school leader's buried-in-papers desk into a well-organized one.
      • Taskclone: an app that instantly syncs a to-do list entered into your meeting notes right into your online calendar.

      EL’s experienced team of writers and editors produces Educational Leadership magazine, an award-winning publication that reaches hundreds of thousands of K-12 educators and leaders each year. Our work directly supports the mission of ASCD: To empower educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
