Lesson Planner


Lesson Planner allows teachers to create, manage and deliver individual lesson, according to the classes you teach and the details of your timetable (if you have a timetable setup for you). In addition, you can manage lessons created automatically through the use of Smart Units. You can choose whether to make lessons available to students and/or parents, and in doing so use Gibbon as a virtual learning environment.

The image below shows lessons which have been created for a class, organised by date:
