Abstract: This research reports on Phase One of an Erasmus + EU Project, Educational Knowledge Transfer (EKT), where an online platform was devised. The EKT platform supports school placement mentors, tutors, and pre-service teachers during their practicum in school. The design of the EKT platform is unique as it is based on the outcome of extensive consultation with academic and technical partners. The details of this consultative phase are reported here. Early results indicate a strong need for such a platform across all partner institutions, and for all members of the school practicum triad. The requirement for such a platform was brought into sharp focus during the Covid-19 crisis, where online tools were urgently required by all partners to the project.
