Google, Friend of the SLP: Part 3

Published September 27, 2010 11:25 AM by Sean Sweeney
You know that "To Do" list you keep losing under a stack of test protocols, or that you wish you could carry with you to each IEP meeting so that you can remember what else you promised to do?  Google can help you with that too, with the same login and password you would use to access the Chat, Docs and Calendar features I described in my last two posts.

There are a lot of great list keepers out there, such as Evernote or Remember the Milk, but, really, it's just easier to keep much of your stuff in the same place! As school-based SLPs, we are pulled in many directions every day, and we don't need to spend extra time setting up another account (or looking for our paper list amongst all of our other paper).  The Google feature I speak of is Tasks, a simple list-keeper you can access right from your Gmail or Calendar.  Tasks allows you to see your list of To-Do's organized however you like, with due dates integrated right into Calendar.  Here's how it works:

 

 

The best part, I think, is the ability to modify these lists from anywhere, including your mobile phone.  If you'd like to see a video demo of Tasks, here's a great one!

What's your favorite method of keeping To-Do lists?

My favorite "To Do" lists are right on my desktop of my laptop. I use the "Stickies" all the time. I have one for each building (each a different color) and one "misc" one.  Every time I have my laptop open, my to-do lists are right in front of me!
