Every teacher is different. Every classroom is unique. Individual learning plans allow teachers to take charge of their own learning. More states and districts are requiring their teachers to develop individual learning plans or individual professional development plans. You can help your teachers create individual learning plans (ILP) by asking them to:
- Complete a self-assessment of current proficiency of technology.
- List examples of technology integration happening in their classroom.
- Write opportunities and challenges that may impact success.
- List resources currently available.
- Write goals in six months for use of technology, types of curriculum projects teacher would like to create, and resources needed.
Then compile the above information to develop their ILP that includes the steps to reach the goals realistically.
