RTM for Teachers.

As a teacher, there is a lot to keep track of.  Use RTM to get the most organized that you have ever been.  Set due dates to make lesson plans, or better yet, put your daily hour by hour lessons on your RTM account. You won't need to carry around your planner anymore, just access it online!  Keep your lessons on a separate list from board meetings, needed materials, and papers to grade.






Lesson Plans.

Elementary.  

In the higher grades of elementary school, many students need to begin learning how to get organized.  Most teachers require students to use assignment notebooks.  In the new digital era, teachers can introduce students to RTM.  Not only could students fit more onto this website, they wouldn't have to decipher their messy handwriting because it is all typed!  Begin by allowing all students to get a RTM account and show the simple features first.  Add tasks, and organize them into different lists.  As the students get the hang of it, introduce reminders, prioritizing, and tagging.

Secondary.

In middle and high schools, RTM can be even more beneficial.  Once students get an account, add them to your contact list and then add those student contacts into a group.  From there you can send your students tasks from your personal RTM account to theirs.  This can make it easy to either assign homework and due dates or send reminders.  So not only can you use RTM to keep organized, so can your students. RTM might appeal better to technologically advanced students rather than an ordinary notebook or planner. RTM can be used to help students with their personal organization skills, but teachers should be aware of some of the applications such as text messaging or instant messaging since these applications aren't allowed in most schools.

Post Secondary.

Once students reach college, most have access to a computer daily and even own laptops.  An online task organizer is much more appealing to today's digital natives, than the old school notebook planner.  So introduce RTM to your students!  Although there are many applications for instructors to use to assign homework, RTM can make it more beneficial to instructors AND students.  Instructors could basically have a schedule of their class on RTM and send out the tasks and homework assignments to the students.  Every class can be organized in the same application instead of professors and instructors using different ones.  As an instructor, you can use RTM just as much as your students.  After putting it to use for all your organizational needs, you can easily help students use it as well, if they need it.

Work Place Application.

Not only can RTM be of use for student in the classroom, it can also be used within the staff of the school and school corporation. RTM would allow the principal to communicate dates and times of meetings easily to the staff of the school.  Conveniently this information comes up with the rest of your to-do lists. Check out the link below to see an idea of how to incorporate RTM into your school.

    It could be used to keep the teacher organized and also to keep students organized.  It may appeal better to today's technologically advanced students than a notebook planner.

    It also could be used to teach students personal organizational skills just beware of some of the applications ie text messaging, instant messaging as reminders, b/c these may not be allowed in your school.

    Remember the Milk can be a huge benefit to students because they will know immediately when an assignment is due.  It will also be harder for them to forget about, and therefore the students are likely to turn more assignments in.

    Remember the milk would work for education in just being organized and prioritizing all of the tasks you may have during the week.  I believe it would also be a huge benifit when you have a big group collaborative project.  you can let eachother know what tasks you are working on and its a good way to keep in touch and update your group members.

    with teachers using this I think it might work with like giving students a little reminder of what might be do in the following days, and they could also possibly assign homework through it.
