Teacher Software: PlanBook
This is not a full review but I have found a lesson plan app called Planbook. It has a desktop component, a public web component, and an iPad app. I spent $30 for the desktop and $10 for the app.
The interface takes a little time to figure out but it runs smoothly after that. The app syncs to the iPad by saving the file in Dropbox. I am not sure how this will work in real time but it moved pretty quickly once I got it set up. You can attach standards, attachments, and customize various boxes. You can also drag and drop one lesson to the next.
I am getting this program to help me stay organized. My stroke really hurts my planning and having a list in front of me should help. Also we are going to 90 minute periods and I really need to divide the class into sections.
