Project Management for Teachers Part III

It turns out there is a very good resource for project management with an education twist.  Hop on over to the PMI’s Educational Foundation and check out the resources they have there.  I especially liked the project management cycles slides and the workshop slides they included.  I hope you will, too!

In the meantime, I leave you with a few resources that should help you manage projects in your classroom:

Zotero: Zotero is more than a citation engine.  It stores resources, such as web pages, PDF files, and documents.  It keeps the user organized with folders.  Its browser extensions pull information from web pages in seconds that would take minutes for a human to type.  Zotero has saved my hide on many an academic occasion, including when I was writing lesson plans.

Diigo: This web-based curation tool harnesses the power of the web browser, too, to link web pages to lists.  Once you select a page, you can tag it, which helps you search for related pages.  It’s quite handy.

http://www.projectmanagementdocs.com/: This site provides a number of project management templates organized by phases in the project.  You might find them useful and be able to modify them to suit your needs in the classroom.

Results Without Authority, by Tom Kendrick: Although Kendrick wrote this book for project managers working on projects with diverse and loosely-connected teams, it is also a great project management primer.  I recommend it highly.

Enjoy!
