Time Tracking

One of the primary goals of this website is the help teachers be more efficient in their jobs by utilizing technology.

However, lately, I have felt pretty inefficient, and I wanted to know where my time was going. So I downloaded the app Timelogger and have been tracking how I spend my time at school. I’m hoping if I can see any less important areas where I’m spending too much time, I can find ways cut those back.

I chose Timelogger because it’s native to iOS instead of being a web service like Toggl. Most importantly, it has an Apple Watch app where I can start and stop my timers. I like to leave my phone at my desk most of the day, so having controls on my watch is crucial.

I’ve only been doing this a few weeks, including one where I was out 3 days this past week for spring break. I don’t know that I have enough data yet to make any decisions, but hopefully by the end of the school year I can learn where my systems can be improved and then make the necessary adjustments over the summer.

If you’d like to join me in tracking your time, Timelogger can be downloaded for free on the App Store, but a $4.99 in-app purchase is required to unlock the full feature set.
