Visit our current cycle at our new home,

Over 9000 educators have joined the The 30 Goals Challenge since January 2010. You have the opportunity to join our community in accomplishing 1 to 30 goals throughout the year. These are short-term goals we reflect on and see how they help us aim towards long-term goals to make us better educators. We support each other through social networks- our Facebook groupYoutube,  Twitter (#30GoalsEdu), and blogs.

How to Participate

  • Accomplish the goal of your choice, post a reflection, and share your reflection with the 30 Goals Community.
  • You don’t have to accomplish all 30 goals. Feel free to accomplish as many as you’d like. You can choose to accomplish the current goal suggested by 1 of our participants at our site, or choose a goal from the previous cycles.
  • Post your reflection on your blog, in our Facebook groupYoutube, and/or Twitter (#30GoalsEdu).

Join Our Virtual Road Trip!

This year The 30 Goals Challenge is going on an international virtual road trip!  Each month the goals and interviews will be hosted on different blogs from our various participants. All the interviews and goals will also be shared on our site, Would you like us to visit your site and learn about you and your country? Fill out this form to be part of our road trip.

To make this process easier I have created this free e-book of the 2010 goals that has all the goals listed in order. You can share this with your school, other teachers, your students, and administrators.
