SMART Advantage Homeschool Planners: What to Know
The office of PIE uses Microsoft Word and Excel for designing and formatting documentation and record-keeping tools, which is useful for achieving the best results with customization. We then use Adobe Acrobat Pro to convert documents to a portable document format (PDF) and protected PDF forms for members to use.
And instead of simply throwing out some homeschool planners, we thought it would be interesting to put together a basic planning process demonstrating how these tools work. From an independent educator’s perspective, our basic planning process has a beginning, a middle, and an end designed to deal with different aspects of a complex educational system.
Here’s a top-to-bottom list of our mock planning process’s distinct parts or phases. The top-level distinction “Identifying Values” is listed first. Our simulated planning process will be the basis for the design of our SMART Advantage Homeschool Planners.
Homeschool Program: a plan including a series of events that involve identifying personal values, long-term goals, short-term goals, daily objectives, educational and administrative processes and procedures, measured performances, and much more.
So the journey begins.
