Developing Tech Savvy School Counselors with PlanSmart

Thetford Center, Vermont – April 1, 2012 – Counselor Educators teach students to collect and use data to drive decisions using Counselors Room’s innovative new tech tool PlanSmart. PlanSmart is designed specifically for School Counselors.
Students create surveys on a computer individually or in teams during Assessment, Practicum or Internship class. Students conduct surveys among themselves or in a school where they are interning. Designs and graphed results are analyzed in class.

Students learn to evolve from the time-consuming manual process of printed surveys to the more efficient, data-driven proactive process of online surveys.

Counselors Room was created in 2009 to meet the urgent need for better and more organized mental health resources for school age children. Partnering with several educational publishers, we have provided thousands of busy counselors with life skill lesson plans, games, art therapy, and group activity ideas.
