Google Calendar

The Google Blog has recently announced that Google Calendar is now mobile phone-friendly. Simply visit http://calendar.google.com on your mobile device and a screen similar to the one above will be presented to you.

What has this to do with educational technology? Well, as I’ve mentioned before over at teaching.mrbelshaw.co.uk, Google Calendar can be employed as a powerful and convenient lesson planning tool. However, there are times when your desktop access to the Internet is down. At my current school, that’s quite often. Being able to check your lesson plans on your mobile is perfect!
