Session Description

Help celebrate the 10th year of the GPS LifePlan (goals+plans=success). GPS is a FREE holistic resource dedicated to helping students stay in school and graduate. Attendees will see the updated and redesigned website and learn about some of the new ground breaking features – which include: Learning content publisher/provider/delivery platform; LifePlan repository (i.e., students can save the results of their explorations and goal setting); Device and mobile friendly content. GPS has not only added new features, it made the existing information and resources even more useful and interactive. For example, when students complete self-assessments, many of the results will be automatically stored in their repository; and it’s even easier to find and utilize the comprehensive features in the five different sections (Career, Education, Finance, Leadership and Personal). GPS will help secondary schools meet legislative requirements for career/college readiness.

Presentation Objectives:

  • Provide an overview of the redesigned GPS LifePlan
  • Participants will understand how to use the new features, in tandem with the old resources in the GPS LifePlan and how it can benefit their student
  • Participants will be shown how GPS LifePlan resources can help meet career and college readiness legislative requirements.
