How can I speed up my planning time?

iUgo has a number of features that streamline the planning process. One of those features that saves planning time is Copying lessons from group to group.

Copy your lesson to another group/class
Often a lesson varies only slightly from group to group. Once you have planned for one group in iUgo, you can copy this plan to another group and tweak where necessary to make it relevant.

To do this:

• Complete a lesson plan for the first group.

• Click the Blue Lesson Cog in first groups header and select Copy.

• From the dropdown list in the pop-up box, choose the group you want to copy the lesson to and click Copy Lesson.


Copy your daily teacher notes

If you have a detailed/ preferred layout for your daily lessons opt to make a copy rather than copying and pasting or working from scratch.


To do this:

• Complete a one of your daily teacher notes within the weekly lesson template in a unit plan.

• Click the Blue Plan Cog on the top right of the plan and select Copy Day. 

• Tweak the copied day as needed.



Copy your lessons across to future weeks

If your lessons are similar from one week to the next you can copy them from week to week within the weekly lesson template in a unit plan.


To do this:

• Complete a lesson plan for the first week.

• Click the Blue Plan Cog on the top right of the plan and select Copy Week.

• Tweak the copied plans as needed.



Copy your entire plan for a new term

Another copy feature that saves planning time is Copying Plans. Inquiry or Unit Plans are often able to be used in another timeframe for another group of students with little editing needed.

To do this:

• Open the Plan which you would like to copy.

• Click the Blue Plan Cog on the top right of the Plan and select Copy Unit.

• You can select one of three options. Select Plan only to copy just the Unit or Inquiry Plan. Select Plan & lessons to copy the Unit or Inquiry Plan plus the detail of the lessons. Select Plan, lessons & classes/groups to copy the Plan, lesson and groups information.

In each of these selections you can edit the plan to add extra teachers or classes.
