After seeing a tweet from @tombarret¬†about how you can use google calendar to send reminders about events on your calendar to your phone via SMS. In his tweet he mentioned how he uses it to remind him of his yard duty or other activities. As I’m usually extremely busy (as we all are) I have been known to forget the occasional yard duty or important lunch time meeting (haven’t we all) so decided to head to www.google.com/calendar to set it up for myself.

Watch the video below to see how you go about setting up this simply brilliant tool for your own reminders. The end of the video also shows what the SMS looks like when it reaches your device. Now think of the possibilities of this with your students……
