Are you a TpT seller or just someone with a LOT on your to-do list?
I know I’m not alone. Thousands, if not millions, share my post-it-note-stacks-of-notebooks-hastily-scratched-paper-scrap-notes-to-self chaos. There’s a lot going on, and there are constant lists, ideas, and inspiration striking at all times of the day.
Do you ever get that déjà vu sensation when you’re planning a lesson that you’ve done this before? Or worse, that haunting feeling that you had a brilliant idea, you wrote it down (didn’t you?), but it’s nowhere to be found? Or, perhaps even more annoying, you complete planning a project, and directly afterward find the set of notes from the first time you planned the project – months ago – in a “safe” spot: the purple notebook at the bottom of the notebook tower on your desk?
Notebooks run out of space and post-it notes lose their stick -- if you move them as much as I do, anyway. Frankly, I just couldn’t keep my ideas and task organized effectively until last year, when I found a life-saver of an organizational tool. It’s FREE!!! It’s helped me so much, and no, I am not being compensated in any way to write this blog. They have no clue who I am, but I am indebted to Trello, and I wanted to share the love.
Trello is an online project management tool (it’s also available as a mobile app). You can use it alone, or you can share task boards with a team. See the screenshot below for some of my favorite features:
I created an introductory video (~13 min.) embedded below to show you how to get started:
Note: I posted this video on my new YouTube channel, which was one of my Trello task cards, now completed! More videos will be coming weekly, starting June 16 - mostly focusing on STEM Challenges. Be sure to check it out/subscribe! :)
And, no, I was not sponsored or asked to write this blog; I think Trello is just that awesome and thought you might agree!
Check out these other great ideas from some of my favorite bloggers!
