|Methodology of using the resource/ tool||
Airtable is a userfriendly combination of a database and spreadsheet. It is able to link information from different tables together.
You can customise it to meet the needs of your planning, tutoring, monitoring etc and it also has a variety of available templates ready to be used.
You can view your content in different formats : grid, calendar, gantt etc. making it more suitable to the content and your needs.
It is a resource than can be used for creating lesson plans, to-do lists, student progress tracking, visual representations of data etc.
Once you have an Airtable account you can create different workspaces or areas for specific projects. Once created and named, you can then start to work there and invite any collaborators to join the workspace as well.
You can manually input data or you can import data from other sources including Google Sheets, Excel, Microsoft Access etc.
You can work collaboratively in Airtable by inviting others to specific workspaces you would like them to join. That way you can all work collectively on in the same space and all have access to the same content.
You can personalise the level of access different people have in different workspaces or bases. You can restrict some people from editing certain content. These restrictions include: owner, editor, commenter, read-only.
You can add a formula field to your tables to help you to compute values automatically. They can be very useful for referencing information in another table, completing calculations etc.
You can connect many many apps to your airtable making it easier to move information between them. Apps that are supported include: Dropbox, Facebook, EventBrite, Gmail, Google Calendar,Google Drive, MailChimp, Slack, LinkedIn etc.
You can synch information so that there is always one up-to-date source for everyone collaborating. This can be done manually or it can be done automatically so that everytime new information is added or information is changed, it updates for everyone.
You can choose different ways to see the data that you have inputted in Airtable. You can hide certain fields you might not need, filter them or sort them by specific criteria. You can also colour-code items, or view it in calendar mode, as a timeline or a grid.
You can assign different tasks to different people and you can then also view all of the tasks that each person has assigned to them.
