“Using Google Docs for curriculum planning is like bringing a blunt pocket-knife to a gunfight”Mark Krabousanos

Teaching is a complex job – it requires balancing a lot of moving pieces. As teachers, we have to design the curriculum, check its balance, plan lessons, search for resources, ensure connections between planned and taught curriculum, personalise lessons for students, collect evidence of learning, assess students, generate progress reports, connect with families, take attendance, set up classes – we could keep going – it’s an endless list really! And of course, all of this needs to be done after 6-8 hours of teaching a rigorous curriculum.
