I wish my whole team would use this
Kommentare: This is a great resource for teachers who love technology and easy planning. It's also a great way to keep track of all those many papers and documents and organize them chronologically based off when they're used.
I learned about PlanbookEdu from a colleage and was hooked immediately. I love how easy it is to link my lesson plans to this and documents used so that all my digital resources are in one place for me to refer to from year to year. It's so nice to have this digitally so that I can easily access lesson plans from home or school without remembering to haul my notebook home. It's also nice when I'm able to collaborate with other teachers on my team so that I can see that we're on the same page.
I like that I can have reoccurring events, easily include days off, and that it's easy to customize through color coding and font sizing and colors.
Nachteile: Unfortunately, we had one member of our group that was into a more traditional planning format (paper and pencil) so that's what we stuck with. Her argument was that it wasn't user friendly (I disagree) but that could be an argument for some that aren't as familiar with this form of planning.

Kommentare: Overall Planbook does the job pretty well. For years I had used my paper planner which had the days going down the side. It took me a while to get used to the calendar going across the top instead. It would be nice if they offered an option to go either way.
Vorteile: Online accessibility across platforms, Colors, Flexibility to set design (colors, fonts, font size, display layout, sorting), It's sharing options, and Google Calendar integration. Share lessons with other teachers.
Nachteile: When using Google Calendar, it bumps the rows out of wack. Deleting a series of days in a row is cumbersome (I copied lessons to the wrong class, then had to delete them... one at a time).

Nice Program for Planning
Kommentare: I've used this program since I began teaching five years ago, and I think it's overall easy and convenient to use.
Vorteile: I like the option to include a particular format and repeat it for the following weeks. I also like that I can choose the amount of class periods I want to show on the screen. This is especially helpful for the subjects I have multiple classes for. I can combine them instead of making each lesson separate, which saves time. Additionally, I like that I can add attachments to my plans and also that my administrators and department heads can leave feedback for me. Further, PlanbookEdu saves all lesson plans from previous years so I can go back and reference them if I need to.
Nachteile: I have never really had any issues with this program; however, I think it would be a nice option to provide some lesson planning templates for teachers to use.

Great for technologically-savvy teachers!
Kommentare: I used PlanbookEdu for one year. I consider myself a pretty technologically savvy person, and I wanted to see how it felt to have fully digital lesson plans. It was a little bit more difficult for me personally, as I plan regularly with my colleagues. It was difficult to plan ahead, and look back at past weeks, during meetings. For me personally, a regular paper planbook was more feasible, but I have many colleagues and acquaintances that swear by Planbook! It's all about preferences between online planning and pencil-to-book planning. If you are someone who wants to plan digitally, this is a fantastic option.
Vorteile: I really liked the ability to have this planbook available digitally. It was one less thing I was carrying home at night, and saved on paper. The cost of the software was very fair, cheaper than many paper-based options. It was easy to use the features to meet my needs.
Nachteile: There were times where I wanted to print my plans to have a hard copy. The plans did not print well. The more information you put in for lesson plans, the more paper was needed to print the plans. They became difficult to read because of this - the same day was spread across multiple pages.

I live by this website
Kommentare: If my school no longer paid for our subscription, I think I would purchase it anyway for myself. I live by my calendar!
Vorteile: I love that when things come up, I can easily "bump" lesson plans to the next day. It embeds easily into my website for students and parents to follow. It's customizable to my state standards.
Nachteile: I wish the turn in button was larger to remind me to press it when I'm finished.

Kommentare: PlanbookEdu has really helped me streamline and digitize my lesson planning
Vorteile: This is a good piece of software to use for building lesson plans in education. It allows me to put my objectives, standards, and general lesson details in one area. I can also create a pdf to submit to my administrators
Nachteile: It takes a little bit of work to set up each class/section. Once this initial component is done, you do not have to do it again until the next school year.

Review of PlanbookEdu
Kommentare: Planbook Edu is helpful for teachers and for keeping track of lessons and plans.
Vorteile: I liked how easy it was to navigate and to enter plans into the program. You are able to create multiple Plan Books. You can also link the account to Google.
Nachteile: I have nothing negative to say about this software. It would have been helpful to incorporate a Gradebook with the planbook.

Teacher's Best Friend
Kommentare: It has really helped speed up the lesson plan process and made it enjoyable!

Vorteile: This is a very simple, easy-to-understand product. The price is very affordable and it has great, clear directions and navigation on how to set up your lesson plans.
Nachteile: I think it's outdated and needs to include an area where one can submit their own customized courses for lesson planning.
