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.

Then compile the above information to develop their ILP that includes the steps to reach the goals realistically.
