As educators, we know that we must first focus on the learning and then look at the technology to support learning. Planning as a process keeps the focus on learning and not the technology. Because the lesson planner can be customized to the needs of the user, it increases organization and provides a coherent framework for smooth efficient teaching and learning.
The planner isn't a traditional schedule of events, but more of a roadmap for learning. Teachers, parents, students, and administrators can have access to plans, so that everyone clearly understands how learning will be generated, supported, and assessed.
"The planner is a one stop shop for students to access all of the information needed to complete their work. It streamlines how students access content."- Teacher in Forsyth, GA
