I am determined to try and reduce my generation of paperwork this year and I am looking at exploring the use of iDoceo. I have spent the afternoon setting up my classes, generating seating planners and setting up timetable schedules and I’m ready to go! iDoceo is marketed as a teachers assistant. It is a one-stop shop; a diary, planner, timetable, gradebook and even resource manager all in one. Resources can be attached to lesson plans within the app itself. It also fully integrates with ical so it is a fantastic way to keep yourself organised and I’m already really looking forward to using it. The app gets excellent reviews from those that are already using it and there are lots of resources to support people using the app. Whilst it has taken the investment of a few hours to set up it looks like it is going to be well worth it!
The iDoceo website has a full details of the app and an extensive ‘how to’ section.
This short but useful video shows you how to set up iDoceo for the first time.

This google search engine is specifically for locating useful SMART notebook files and could be very useful for identifying resources (they are however not limited to the British curriculum and will include resources from other countries curriculums).
Remember for a specific search or resources linked to the English curriculum subject areas that there is alse the SMART exchange which provides support for searching for subject specific topic areas across different key stages. There are also some great quizzes on here which can be adapted. You can find out more about the SMART exchange including a video tour of what is on offer and how to search in this previous post.

For those of you that are new to SMART notebook v.10 I have written a “Beginners Guide to..” to try and help make it easier for you to get started with playing around with what notebook can offer. As well as giving an overview of what the different buttons and tabs mean on the notebook interface, I have also given basic instructions for completing simple tasks such as inserting text, images etc., importing PowerPoints etc. You can download the Guide here.
When you become confident in using Notebook, you can explore some of the other posts here (under the categories of IWB and SMART notebook) to find some ideas for more advanced use of the board.
