Term Planner in Freeform

I noticed a lot of our teaching teams using whiteboards in their offices to draw up a term overview grid and it made me think that Freeform would be a really great tool to do this also. Teaching Teams and even teacher assistants could be invited to collaborate on or view the board. The built in stickers, shapes and the way that Apple Pencil, links and other elements work, make this such a lovely tool to use for this kind of work.

I have created a quick screen recording explaining how I have made it and how it can be used. It is highly customisable and can be edited to suit your needs. It is structured for a simple 4 term year, which is what we have in Australia but everything can be unlocked and moved about. I specifically used Freeform elements but you could easily import templates created elsewhere and work in a similar way. This template could also be adapted as a curriculum mapping tool.

The board is endless so you could potentially add many other things and make this your team hub for the school year.

Have a look at the example here. You wont be able to edit this copy but you can make a duplicate for yourself. I hope this idea is useful!

Laura, this is a great idea! Thanks for the template. So true that many teachers use a classroom white board - but that can’t be seen at home. Freeform is a perfect solution for keeping learners organized when they are at home or school.

Thanks so much - just a concept. I am sure it could be made to look much prettier by many of the creative teachers we have in here.
