S.M.A.R.T. Goals for Online Learning Infographic
Online learning has disrupted education, and with many schools sharing fantastic results it’s exciting to add these learning options for students. However, in the enthusiasm of getting started, goal setting might be overlooked. Too many times I’ve heard someone at a school say, “We tried an online learning program, but it didn’t really work.” Having clear goals for any school program is a key factor for success. The S.M.A.R.T. goals framework is a simple way to engage in goal setting that will set your school, district, or classroom up for success.
The S.M.A.R.T. goals technique is the most popular method used for goal setting in the world today. There are a number of variations of this technique but the most common version states that a well set goal should meet the following criteria. It should be:
- S. = Specific
- M. = Measurable
- A. = Attainable
- R. = Realistic
- T. = Time Based
