Digital vs Paper Planner

I love my tech...and I just got a new iPad that is pencil compatible. I am debating ditching my paper planner for a new digital planner. Has anyone done this? Any suggestions on where to look? Ideally, I would love to have all my school and family stuff in one area. We use the native calendar app on the iPhones for us as a family already.

I don't have a digital planner in the way you're describing, but I've been using on online planner (planbook.com) for four years. I will never go back to handwriting lesson plans. NEVER! It is SO much easier, and I can write more details using the online planner than I ever could handwriting them.

If I had an iPad, I might do one like you, but I'm really happy with what I've been doing.

I love the versatility and integration with the calendar and reminders.

I can't tell from your post if you mean a planner for lessons or just something like a calendar. I used planbook for years, but switched to planboard this year because it's free and very similar. I used to have a paper planbook and it just wasn't enough space for me. I also hated how messy it would look any time I needed to make changes, and for me typing is 10x faster than handwriting (and I can copy and paste some stuff too).

If you're just talking about a calendar, I just use google calendar. You can color code, set reminders, etc. You could have one color for family things and one for work things or make it more complex if you want.

I tried the digital planner from The Lettered Classroom. I liked it, but I liked my paper and pencil better. My handwriting isn't as legible on my iPad and I felt like it took more time and energy.
