Once you've settled on a format for your lesson plan, it is a good idea to develop a template that will work for you in your context. An example of a template can be seen here.
The detail that you provide in a lesson plan will depend on what works for you. Some lesson plans are descriptive, others may only use a few bullet points, or maybe a flowchart works better for you. You will learn more by seeing examples of other teachers' lesson plans. These can be found further on.

- Lino IT uses a virtual canvas and post-it notes.
- You can add text, colour code, move the notes around, and add documents, images and video/audio files to each.
- Trello is another useful tool for planning.
- You can set up individual virtual boards and organise a selection of 'cards' on the board. items can be labelled using different colours if that is your thing.
