Plans for the next steps are in progress and several preparations for the application for step 2 of the project are made.

Planned approach and implementation

A project team were initially formed, and through a combination of activities such as investigating former research regarding measuring of professional learning, screening the market for existing digital tools and learning-platforms and conducting a survey to better understand the needs of schools, the initial challenge was clarified. New partners were also introduced to the project preparing for phase 2, and an established company, providing an interesting digital tool for measuring change has connected to the project.
