10 Apps to Stay Organized for the End of the Year

By Jessica Sanders

The end of the year is pure chaos—exams, assessments, meetings and antsy students. These apps make it easier than ever to manage your time and stay organized, despite an unmanageably hectic schedule.

Clear 

Stop going to different calendars and apps to access your various to-do lists; bring them together with this iOS and Mac app. With everything in one place, it’s easier to manage work and life.

Knowmia

Keep your presentations organized while engaging students using Knowmia. This app is perfect for the end of the year, when students are ready to run out the doors for summer vacation.

Whooo’s Reading 

The end of the year is no time for keeping track of paper reading logs. Keep students engaged, while making it easier to organize and track their reading, with this web app. The first two months are free!

Easy Assessment

This iOS app allows you to put students into groups, with specific rubrics and assessments for each group. In a classroom with a wide knowledge gap between students, this organization will be your sanity.

Planboard

If you haven’t been using this app all year, no problem—import the lessons you’ve already written so you can track standards progress, while keeping everything organized for next year.

30/30

Use 30/30 to stay on track when grading papers or prepping lesson plans while dreaming of the summer sunshine. Simply add your tasks, put a time limit on each one and go! You’ll be amazed at how motivated you are to stay on track.

Things

Make your to-do list more effective with Things, which makes it easy to break jobs down into bite-sized tasks that are more manageable. Add tags, customize your workflow, and use the daily review to make sure you got everything done.

Essay Grader

Use this app ($5.99) to make end of year essay grading less stressful and more organized. With Essay Grader, you can choose from a list of pre-made comments, email the grade to yourself, sync the essay files across multiple devices and much more.

CalenGoo

CalenGoo makes it easy to get a glance-and-go look at all your calendars. With end of the year meetings, preparation for exams and more, this will be a lifesaver.
