Complete elation with a calendar discovery!
Tammy Keilman
So I edited my post about the calendar question but this is so good I am going to share in a separate post. I have my personal calendar on Google calendar which is synced with my phone. I created a new Google calendar for school (which I can choose to show at the same time as my personal calendar, or not, which is helpful) and I found this sophia tutorial that teaches you how to easily embed your school Google calendar in a sophia tutorial (I did it as part of a playlist and moved it to the top where the students will see it first thing upon going into the playlist). I can edit this at any time from any computer or my phone, and best of all is that it will update on the embedded version on sophia automatically and the students can scroll through it to look to the future, or click on an event to see more detail. Here is the sophia tutorial on how to do it: http://www.sophia.org/tutorials/put-your-google-calendar-on-sophia/questions/18753#question_18753
Note: adjust the width in the html to 600 (very easy, just change the number where it says "width") and it will fit the sophia screen beautifully. YAY!
