Google Form To Support Goal Setting

Start the year with goal setting

Effective goal setting is one of the most important reflective processes in any learning environment. It is an area of teaching (and leading) which is critical to helping learners become self-managing. Learn how to start the year with goal setting using a Google Form.

Effective goal setting has a direct impact if done well, on the learning culture and your ability as a teacher (or leader) to enhance learner agency. This post will help you learn to use a Google Form to support goal setting.

As a school leader and teacher, I love the ongoing process of helping learners set, reflect on and achieve their goals – it’s exciting work! I’ve created a tutorial and template to provide teachers and school leaders to use to help streamline this important process. Use this tutorial to learn to use a Google Form to support goal setting at your school.

This template has a number of benefits:

  • For class teachers and school leaders – if you opt to capture information using a Google Form, you can then use the resulting Google Sheet to capture evidence along the way.
  • For class teachers – when it comes time for reporting, you can use these parent written ideas to help craft your reporting.
  • For school leaders – if you use one version of this template across your teaching team or school, then you get aggregated data on what is important for the learners in your team/school. As a school leader you can then be involved in everyone’s goal setting and support them alongside the teachers.
  • For school leaders – if you use the same template to capture information about curriculum design, you’ve done some of your ongoing review at the same time as capturing goal setting information – brilliant!

In addition to this free template, we will provide you with additional ideas and resources and ideas to support goal setting in your learning environment.
