Lesson planning on is super easy! Gone are the days when you have to handwrite all of your plans. And, since there are attachment and link features available, you can easily have all of your materials right where you need them. For me, I like to open my planbook on my computer that I use to project information to my students, so that I can easily click the links they need! No more trying to find documents or printing things to use the document camera – I just open the PDF and can write directly on it using my projector.
