If Assignments Are Online, Do You Really Need a Planner?

Most high schools these days have online portals where teachers track what assignments are due and when. Because of this, I often have students complain — do I REALLY need to write my assignments down? After all, they’re online already!!

This week I had two situations with clients in which I finally had PROOF of why it is indeed important to re-write those assignments in a planner. Tune into the video, where I share the Google Calendar I use with students and I show you what my clients and I noticed today.

A lot of times students think because they have online when assignments are due then they do not need to keep track of them in a planner. In this video I show you that it is important to plan out assignments because sometimes you’ll have assignments that are all due on the same day. You shouldn’t be rushing to get everything done in one day. Plan out the days you are actually going to be completing the assignments on Google Calendar so that you do not put yourself in a bind.

If you are a teacher, tutor, or academic coach, or perhaps even a parent, interested in learning more about not only planning for your students, but about how to help your students become independent learners and test-taking powerhouses, please consider checking out my course, The Art of Inspiring Students to Study Strategically.

  1. That’s one of the beauties of Google Classroom. Not only does it notify students when assignments are made but it puts them on the calendar and sends a reminder the day before.
