Google Calendar: Scheduling the Mobile Labs

In the past few weeks, you may have gotten an e-mail from me inviting you to use Google Calendar (if you previously were not signed up for this service).

With our K12 credentials, the state has given us all Google Accounts, and we have talked before about some of the google products we can use, such as google Drive.

Google Calendar is simply another tool we can use.  It's simple, and it's easy, and we can all access Google Calendars from our own computers.

After discussing this with the Tech committee, we decided to move the Calendars for the Mobile Labs to an "Online" Calendar... so that way, we can find them, and sign up for them directly from your own computer.  No more sending someone down to the lab to see who signed up for it last.
(Also, no more having to go anywhere to sign up for it yourself...you can simply sign up for it from your own desk.)

The following screencast (which I recorded on Screenr) will walk you through the steps of how to log into your Google Calendar account, and how to schedule the mobile lab.  Several people are already doing this, and it seems to be working pretty well.

If you are having trouble
A. Signing into your google account
B. Scheduling the lab
C. or anything else (maybe the lab isn't 'shared' with you?)
Please let me know, and I will try to walk you through it, and help you in any way that I can.
