PlanTime: A Best App for Lesson Planning
Summary : An easy-to-use app with immediate instructional benefits
PlanTime is an automated planning book for teachers. With PlanTime, teachers type their lesson plan directly into the app and they allot specific amounts of time for each segment of their lesson (e.g., introduction, anticipatory set, guided practice, and independent practice). Once all the information for the lesson plan has been inputted and time segments allotted, teachers hit the play button. Then, as teachers move through their lesson, PlanTime shows them their lesson plan and keeps a running clock regarding the amount of time used and remaining as teachers progress through their lesson. PlanTime also includes a Library feature that saves each lesson plan teachers create and stores it in the app. Plus, once a lesson plan is created, teachers can use the toggle feature (indicated with the crossed arrows) to edit the order of their lesson and its contents.
- Teacher can use this app to monitor their pacing.

- After a lesson, teachers can use this app to make quick edits to their lesson plan before teaching it again.
