Use Google Calendar to Schedule Class Time at Home
Using email is a critical 21st-century skill for success in the workplace. Through Digitability, students learn how to recognize icons in Google applications so that they can send emails and complete related tasks like attaching files to email correspondence. In addition to teaching the functional skills to execute these correspondences, students are also taught the social dynamics that must be understood in order to properly and appropriately communicate with others professionally.
Google Calendar, a tool utilized hand-in-hand with Gmail, lets you stay organized, manage your time, create appointments, organize your tasks, and create events. An event is an appointment you can create in your Google Calendar, and many people utilize this and other features in Google Calendar in conjunction with Gmail.
