Using Action Plans

Action Plans can help you to determine and lay out the necessary steps and components to succeed in a certain pursuit. For example, if you are having trouble finishing an essay, you can use an Action Plan to plan out what you will accomplish on a given day and what resources you will use to do so (such as libraries, colleagues etc.)

Action Plans can be found opening up the main PebblePad page and going to Custom resources > “See more” under PebblePad Templates. There are two types of Action Plans: SMART Action Plan and simply Action Plan.

SMART Action Plan

This is a more brief Action Plan and is primarily useful for detailing and setting a specific and achievable goal for which progress can be tracked. Here, you can outline and set a deadline for your goal as well as list resources to help you accomplish it. You also have room for reflection what you have learned on the effectiveness of this plan.

Action Plan

The regular Action Plan is meant to help you in a situation where you are stuck and unable to make progress in your work. In this plan you can describe your current situation and analyze it to individually identify steps to help you succeed if the plan required is a complex one. In addition to outlining the resources you can use to achieve your goal, you can also list your strengths and weaknesses to determine how to structure your plan to avoid your weaknesses.
