Use Planning for individual or group plans with goals and for lesson plan schedules. You can link back to plans from other parts of Educa -- from stories, other plans and/or teacher posts -- as evidence of process and to provide context.
You can invite (link) any teacher to your plan. They can then comment and edit, making Planning a great collaboration tool for teachers. For directors, this visibility helps oversight.
Any plan template in the "Select Plan Template" (your starting point) can be changed by authorized staff. Add or delete sections, edit the headings and more or create completely new templates. More on plan templates here.
Inside a plan you can attach resources, such as a PDF with game instructions, schedule printouts. You can also link to any curriculum, child stories and other plans.
