The Goalbook University Partnership Program enables accredited teacher education programs to provide Goalbook Toolkit at reduced cost to student-teachers. The purpose of this program is to augment the work of teacher education programs in preparing the next generation of educators by increasing their knowledge and confidence in leveraging the latest educational technology to ensure the success of all students.
“At High Point University our educator preparation programs of study reflect the latest research on best practices in teaching. The faculty of the Specialized Curriculum Department strives to include practical tools and innovative technology into coursework to better prepare future special education teachers for the classroom. Goalbook’s visionary program provides our students an opportunity to learn how goals for students with disabilities are developed, linked to standards, integrated into lesson plans, and realistically implemented in a classroom. We look forward to continuing and expanding our partnership with Goalbook as we prepare the next generation of special educators.“

With Goalbook, future educators have a powerful resource that:
Two professors at San Francisco State University examined IEP goals written by their graduate students, and discovered that they were missing many key elements. They then partnered with Goalbook and provided the resource for their students. Goalbook Toolkit resulted in a significant improvement in crafting IEPs that were personalized, aligned with Common Core State Standards, and more useful in monitoring student progress.
“Goalbook has been a tremendous resource for my students at UW-Oshkosh. Students in the first semester of the program find the easy-to-use UDL features tremendously helpful, and advance practicum students rely on Goalbook’s research-based strategies and Common Core resources in helping them complete assignments and prepare for edTPA requirements during student teaching.”
