Practically speaking, prototypes are ways through which teachers can be supported to perform advanced pedagogical scenarios in their classroom. The notion ‘prototype’ encloses functional and non-functional software tools as well as descriptions of how to perform learning activities. They present promising ways to address identified design challenges by adequately building on identified design opportunities.
Here, the software tool prototypes are presented. For more detailed information about each prototypes, including news about the development can be found on their particular pages.
