Educational Planning


About Educational Planning

Educational planning is responsible for specifying the goals, objectives and goals of education. Thanks to this type of planning, it's possible to define what to do and with what resources and strategies.

Educational planning involves the interaction of various dimensions. For example, from the social aspect, it must be borne in mind that the school is part of a society and, as such, the changes it experiences will transcend it.

According to the technical dimension, educational planning must consider the use of technology in pedagogy, while in terms of its political dimension, it must meet existing regulatory frameworks.

On the other hand, educational planning is developed in a series of steps. The first stage is the diagnosis, where educational needs, learning conditions and external factors that affect the educational process are linked.

The next step is the analysis of the nature of the problem, which implies an integral understanding of the complexity of the educational reality.

Planning continues with the design and evaluation of action options. What the planning does is try to anticipate the result of the possibilities considered, in order to select the most appropriate for the fulfillment of the objectives.

Once the action or actions to be chosen is chosen, the moment of implementation arrives, which is the implementation of educational planning. Finally, it's the turn of the evaluation, where balances are established to analyze the success of the process and its results.

The importance of planning when teaching

It's important to point out that planning is one of the fundamental tools in the organization of teaching work, as it allows establishing the objectives that you wish to achieve when applying the activities that have been designed for the student (s). The result of good educational planning is a comprehensive development and an effective dissemination of functional learning so that each child can face their future life.

To carry out a correct organization of work, it's necessary to devote time for students to understand, what their qualities are, how they approach education, what activities could favor an effective learning performance, etc.

Some teachers for fear of being little spontaneous or interesting at the time of imparting their knowledge, tend to blend their speeches in real time, without paying attention to the program and forgetting to consider the objectives of each class; in this way they end up offering a disorderly and deficient education that only leads to students getting confused and not understanding the essentials of the subject they are learning.

If you consider that the objective of planning is to be able to decide in advance the future you want to achieve, to implement a balanced and organized teaching, we can say that a teacher who doesn't organize based on a planning will offer a Extremely inefficient education, which will sow more questions than answers in the students.

To be put into practice, educational planning is helped by teaching; that is, of the set of techniques used in teaching (based on a series of principles and procedures applicable in any discipline). This branch of pedagogy isn't only concerned with analyzing what is going to be taught but, and more closely, on how it's going to be taught.

The presence of didactics in educational planning is fundamental because it helps to understand that the content to be offered is as important as the medium in which it'll be delivered; students and the environment in which their lives are developed, both physical and emotional, cultural and social are analyzed. Thanks to the teaching, the teacher can properly do their job, getting the learning is efficient.
