Abstract: Edukata is a collaborative design method for teachers and educators. It is based on an academic practice-based design research method that has been successfully used in designing various learning tools. The method produces high quality Learning Activities that have been empirically validated in over 2500 European classrooms using teacher surveys, observation, video diaries and interviews. Evaluation shows that Learning Activities increase student motivation, strengthen 21st century skills, encourage teachers to use novel technology to support their teaching, and connect their classrooms to society. This paper presents the history of Edukata, the empirical results showing Learning Activity efficacy, and discusses the key features that allow it to change classroom practices.
