Have you ever felt disorganized? For me, disorganization is akin to torture. Everything has a place and everything in its place.
I was beginning to struggle with the organization as a teacher-author, though. I tried organizing things into email folders and google sheets. Things got put into folders, but sometimes they were forgotten. I was spending too much time figuring out how to organize my teacherpreneur life and needed more.
Then I found Milanote…
Milanote helps to organize your ideas, projects, and school work into visual boards. You can create boards, notes, lists, and maps. All of these will help you visualize your goals and what you need to do next. Milanote has been a lifesaver in more ways than one.
Getting Teacher Authors Organized
As a teacher-author, I can organize my ideas and what I need to do next for my business. As an employer, I use Milanote to work with my virtual assistants to see what is next on my plate and what I need them to do next. It even allows me to put due dates on the tasks I need to be done.
Getting Teachers Organized
Teachers can use Milanote for their students, too! You can use Milanote on a smartboard to develop ideas for class rules at the beginning of the year, different ways to review and solve a math equation, or even in an ELA classroom for brainstorming story ideas. By using Milanote, you and your students can easily organize any ideas you have without wasting paper, drawing complicated maps on the board, or visualizing. I know in my past classrooms, I would have loved Milanote for ELA story ideas.
In fact, I’ve run with the idea and want to give you a leg up on this idea. Check out the freebie paper version of a mind map I’ve created for you to try out in your classroom.
