If your school has multiple Google Calendars this tip might be for you! A Tech Coordinator at one of my schools shared that their school has a Google Calendar for each computer lab at school for scheduling extra lab time.
Now here's the time saving tip--teacher's add or edit the event on the lab calendar and then just copy the event from the lab calendar to their class calendar.
Click once on the event and the bubble below will appear. Click on "copy to my calendar."
Google is constantly developing new and innovative online tools to help increase your personal and professional productivity. Lately, they have even begun targeting K12 educators to help them learn to use their Google Tools in the classroom.

Many teachers are using the embeddable Google Calendar to post student homework on their class website, wiki or blogs. Google Calendar can be set up to only show the school week and not include weekends. Follow these simple directions:
1. Click on the "Settings" link under the list of calendars.
2. Select the "General" tab. Scroll down to the "Show Weekends" section and choose "No."
