Teacher Training Bootcamp Gmail Tasks

I recently started some self-learning about Google and all this technology company offers in various tools, apps and platforms that can make teaching easier and fun for teachers, students and parents.  My district transitions to using Google products for our email and online tools like teacher webpages.  I've been wanting to know more and Google's lessons have sure been useful in that goal.  There's so much I didn't know about and a few things I did know about, but hadn't taken the time to understand so I could utilize them.  One of these tools is Google tasks.  I knew they existed, and have used them once or twice with my Google calendar.  However, I didn't realize how well they interface with Gmail.

Did you know with tasks in Gmail you can:

  • Create Lists
  • Set due dates
  • Add details or notes
  • Add an email message to a task
  • Check items off as you do them
  • Decide whether to view done items or not

Here is a video that explains some of the features of using tasks within Gmail.
