Purpose and goal

The project has fulfilled purpose and goals, through design methodology we have tested and innovated a number of new methods to help the use of digital tools in schools. The project has resulted in the particpating teachers feeling more competent in the digital area and design methods which they intend to start using and sharing with colleagues. Two concrete concepts for digital tools adapted to student and teacher needs have been developed, tested and evaluated by participants from private sector. Overall, we found strong support for taking method and concepts further to a 2nd phase.

Results and expected effects

Methods and tools have been evaluated and developed together with teachers, students and experts. Teachers have been trained in design methodology. Parts of method which teachers believe are innovative ways of working in the classroom have been selected for use and to be shared with coleagues. This supports the continuous development of education and their professional development. Using design methodology has been proven to have strong potential. Two prototype digital tools has been developed and evaluated to have high market potential by representatives from the private sector.

Approach and implementation

To theoretically and practically guide teachers in design methodology has been successful, all process steps have been carried out with good results. We have found that parts of the process requires additional expert support, in particular to assess what is adequate and relevant data and to generate insights and make analysis. The project has achieved its two objectives, however, a clearer process to each target could have allowed a clearer focus for project team. Continuous evaluation of the process of researchers has been a great way to ensure quality throughout the project.
