Google Calendar: Basic

Demonstration of Learning

Google Calendar takes the basic functions of a calendar to a whole new level. At ReNEW, we use our calendars all the time. The advanced sharing helps us communicate and collaborate better, be more efficient, and manage our time with ease.

Challenge!

  • Step 1 - Create a calendar!
  • Create a classroom calendar separate from your personal calendar called “Basic Task - [Last Name]
  • Make the calendar public
  • Allow outside viewers to “See only free/busy”
  • Share the “Basic Task - [Last Name]” calendar with google@renewschools.org so that they can “Make changes to events”
  • Change the default color of your new calendar to your favorite color

Optional Reflection:

What public calendars could you make? (i.e. GLT, content team, SPED, clubs, sports, events, etc.)

  • Step 2 - Create an event!
  • Create an event called “Basic Task Event - [Last Name]” in your “Basic Task - [Last Name]” calendar
  • Invite google@renewschools.org to the event
  • Add your school as the location of the meeting (use the actual address - it should pop up when you search!)
  • Change the calendar of the event to “Basic Task - [Last Name]
  • By default, your events will be created in your personal calendar
  • Add notification for 1 hour before the event
  • Attach a Google Doc to the event (for example, your “Basic Task - [Last Name]” file)
  • Change the privacy of the event to “Private”
  • Save the event

Note: feel free to delete the calendar you made here ONLY AFTER you have received a confirmation email that you’ve earned the badge.
