What a great group we had today for the Get Organized! workshop sponsored by the Jacksonville State University Regional Inservice Center. During the morning of this full-day workshop, we learned how to use tickler files, establish a signature tool, document simply yet effectively, and handle tasks which repeat.
In the afternoon, we covered “all things digital” and learned everything from the simply skill set of creating and renaming folders to sharing bookmarks universally through Del.icio.us. In between, we learned a simple method for backing-up files, effective uses for e-mail, capabilities of Google beyond what most people have experienced, and how to pull of of your digital resources together in one spreadsheet, tips on using STI, and other time-saving tools and techniques.
If you are visiting this blog as a result of the JSU workshop, welcome! I hope you enjoy the wealth of material that I have posted over the last several years!
Thanks to Vicky Brown and the folks in the JSU Regional Inservice Center for being such wonderful hosts. To have purchased copies of Get Organized! for everyone was a super gesture!
If you know of others who you think would enjoy this workshop, I will be doing this same full-day workshop through the University of Montevallo Regional Inservice Center on June 30. As of right now, there are 17 seats still available. To sign-up, go to PDWeb and search the PD catalog for Get Organized. Montevallo has opened enrollment to all school systems. They are also providing copies of the book to all who attend.
If you are attending AETC or Mega, I invite you to attend any of the sessions I am conducting there. More information is in this post.
