Get Started: Curriculum Development and Personalizing Assignments

Get Started: Curriculum Development and Personalizing Assignments

Kiddom’s Planner and Timeline are curriculum development tools that work together to help you plan ahead, then modify assignments when you need to.

Your Timeline (left) and Planner (right) work together to help you plan and deliver the right materials when you need them.

 

What is Planner?

You can think of Planner as a digital curriculum binder or bookshelf, storing resources like lesson plans, activities, worksheets, and videos for later use.

With Planner, you’re free to access any of the curricula you design from within any class: the activities and resources can be assigned to any student in any class.

 

Planner (at right) can be made up of assignments, playlists, and resources

 

Planner is organized to help you think about the big picture, but then dig deeper. Structurally, it’s laid out like this:

  • Curriculum: This is one overarching set of units. Every new class has a “Master Curriculum” with the same name as the class. This curriculum will be shared with your co-teachers who have access to your class.
  • Unit: a unit can be organized around a topic or skill, and includes playlists or individual assignments. Unit titles and descriptions are only visible to teachers — not students — as it is purely a way to organize things.
  • Assignment Groups: a number of assignments that are grouped together to serve a purpose, such as remediation, self-paced instruction, differentiation, review, or by topic. The assignments in them can be assigned to students together as a set or individually.
  • Assignment: When you create an assignment in Planner, you can add an attachment from your computer, Google Drive, or Kiddom’s library. You will add standards, due dates, and grading settings when you assign it to students.

What is Timeline?

Your Timeline shows you (and your students) assessments and resources that have been assigned. It shows all of the assignments you have sent to your class (or an individual student), in chronological order. You can even filter assignments that are late or you haven’t graded yet.

 

 

You can create assignments directly in Timeline, but these will only be available in the class you’re in. To be able to re-use the assignment in the future or in another class, consider creating the assignment in Planner first.

How do Planner and Timeline work together?

Once you’ve made an assignment or playlist in Planner, you can drag it over into your Timeline to assign it to an individual student, a group, or the whole class. The original assignment (or playlist) remains exactly the same in your Planner to be used again, and a copy of it is created in your Timeline. You can edit the assignment that’s in your Timeline to modify standards, rubrics, points, a due date, or more detailed instructions for your current class.

 

Easily drag-and-drop assignments and playlists from Planner into Timeline

 

Use these tools in tandem for more efficient planning, and spend more time getting to know your students, analyzing their work, and giving them feedback. Happy Planning!
