III. Real World Applications

Squareleaf can also be suited in a business setting by allowing workers to prioritize their work and will also allow for a less cluttered desk without post-it notes to make it look untidy, which can also disappear without you realizing it.

This site is a very useful tool that can help someone with organization. For years people have used sticky notes, but the problem is they are not 100% reliable. Squareleaf is a site that manages your "sticky notes" without the fear of ever losing them. This application can be used for students needing an everyday schedule, business men for meetings and projects, moms that need to prioritize their busy days, and everyone else that would like a nice easy way to put their days in order.

III.2. Teaching Setting

Squareleaf is free and thus well-suited for classroom use. Squareleaf can help students manage their individual tasks (such as homework, upcoming projects, etc) or even for group tasks. You can use different colors for each member so you know who is doing what part of the project. 

Squareleaf can be used in classrooms in many inventive ways.  You could use this in a kindergarten classroom by letting students experiment with the 2 shapes included - rectangle and square.  They can also use it to explore colors and shapes.  In older primary classrooms it could be used as a means for students to write down their homework for the week or their to-do lists that can then also be seen by the parents.  Teachers would be able to incorporate technology in the classroom while getting simple tasks completed.  Students in grades 1 and 2 could also use it to see how squares and rectangles are tessellating shapes.

Squareleaf can be used as a tool to help plan and execute in the design process.  For example, there are several processes used for engineering and design that involve anywhere from 4 to 18 steps.  The students would plan what steps they would take in order to complete each design process step.  Not all steps are planning, however the students could then write about what went well and what they would do differently next time.  The sticky notes and drag and drop function will make it easy for the students to keep their notes organized for a lab report at the end of the project.  Since it is all online, the student would be able to access their notes at home to write their report.

III.3. Business/Industry Setting

Working in a business setting always entails paperwork, meetings, important dates, and many other events that require a list to keep track of. While a person could write down every single one of those tasks on little post-it notes (that fall off easily) or on a calendar (that fills up too quickly), Squareleaf is a much more efficient way to keep everything in order. Easy to access and easy to use, Squareleaf can allow people in the business profession to stay well organized and punctual. The site can organize each event by color, size, or position and any of the notes can be deleted with the click of a button. Thus, when an event has passed, you can simply delete the note and re-arrange the remaining notes if necessary.

...

In either case, Squareleaf is optimal for use within a business setting because it is handy for any sort of organizational purposes. Be it for punctuality, group management, or even just to separate one’s personal life from their work life, Squareleaf can easily solve any business-related problems of disorganization.
