What it is
The I'm Determined Goal Plan is a visual representation of the steps needed to accomplish an identified goal. The student's goal is written in the center of the sun. Each sunray represents an outcome resulting from goal attainment. In the box that appears below the sun, the steps needed to reach the goal are listed.
How to do it
Use the apps! The iOS app works only with iPads and includes a Teacher Dashboard that allows teachers to track and manage their class. The Web app works on any connected device or computer.
