As school opens today, it’s time to check your inventory of tools to see if you have the latest and greatest. There are plenty of well known Ontario resources from the Ministry of Education, professional organizations, and your own district that are promoted frequently.
Here are a few, perhaps lesser known, Ontario resources that you need to take into consideration to make sure that you’re tapping into the best.
Planboard helps you easily plan and view your academic year. It’s quick and easy to add items for each class. Need a synopsis on weekly schedules? Just hit the week button. Have a lot on your plate? An overview of your day is just a click away.

Finally, a list of blogs from Ontario Teachers, Principals, Trustees/Higher Education and Parent/School Advocates curated by yours truly. As I find great Ontario educational blogs, I add them here. There’s also a form if you want to add your own. In the big educational thinking pot that is the internet, it’s always nice to see what’s happening in Ontario.
How’s that for a collection?
Please add your favourites in the comments and have a wonderful first day of classes.
