Leading adult education through support for and the effective application of technology.

Using Technology to Help Students Set, Achieve, and Publicize Goals


Goal-setting is a crucial step for adult education students to be able to reach their objectives and aspirations. Can we take advantage of technology to help students begin this process and keep everyone – students, teachers, counselors – on track? (The answer is yes!)

In this workshop, we’ll look at a variety of tech tools – for example, stand-alone apps, social media sites, and learning management system functions – that educators can use as students work through the SMART goal-setting and goal-achieving process in high-tech and low-tech settings. We’ll also consider using technology to help us learn about and celebrate student achievements before and after students leave us.

By the end of the presentation, each attendee will identify at least one tech tool they will use with their students to help students set, achieve, and publicize goals.

Prerequisites: All participants must have basic computer skills and know their login information for a work or personal email address.
