Optimize Your Time: Tips to Organize Digital Resources

Utilizing Safari Tab Groups, on iPad or Mac, increases efficiencies and helps to better organize your digital life, as a teacher, coach, administrator or more. By optimizing your tab usage, you can take focus off of the managerial components of your role and prioritize what's important.

1. Review: Review your tab usage by asking essential questions: what tabs do I use, when do I put them to use, and why do I use them?
