It's Tuesday of my "delayed edition" of Teacher Week... so that means Technology Tip Tuesday!! I LOOOOOVE using technology in the classroom, so it was tough picking out just one thing to share.
I absolutely LOVE VolunteerSpot.com!
If you haven't seen it before, you need to check it out! First of all, it's FREE--which makes it a winner already!!! You're able to select items you'd like volunteers to bring and/or tasks you'd like volunteers to do.
When parents sign on to the site, it's like a gift registry--where the number of items or volunteers decreases as people sign up (so they can see exactly where help is needed).--here's a sample.
VolunteerSpot allows you to email your class families when you need volunteers/items donated... AND it sends them an instant email reminder when they sign up PLUS another reminder a few days before the requested date!! I "signed up" to volunteer for the AM... here's the email I received to confirm:
It is so organized and EASY to use!! In fact, after I mentioned finding it online to my school's PTO, they used it for all their events last year. Our Art teacher also used it for Family Art Night to get volunteers and supplies. SUPER EASY!! Let me know if you check it out... my class families loved it last year and I plan on using it again this year!
