about the innovation

What is it all about?

Teachers are professionals valued all around the world. In order to stay on top of their profession, teachers must reflect on their work, invest in workplace communication and respond to the education challenges posed by the society.

Schools and other education institutes are growing constantly. Learning environments are growing and becoming more versatile and schools want to include active members of the community in their workplace, as well. Finding time to collaborate is challenging and school staff's limits are tested regularly.

Every education institution conducts many wonderful pedagogical experiments and find innovative solutions. These ideas and solutions, however, are difficult to implement institution-wide, let alone share with a wider education community. Furthermore, teachers want to use their limited face-to-face meetings to have meaningful conversations, not merely exchange and seek information.

Innovations, ideas and suggestions for experiments can come from individual teachers or be the result of a group-effort. If an experiment is conducted by an individual teacher, its results are often shared just in random coffee break conversations. This, however, is not a good way to improve the whole workplace.


TACT allows the whole workplace to participate as much or little as they wish in the organization's situations, events and tasks. The whole community gets to utilize the shared information and knowhow and the school management can easily track current projects.

You can implement the TACT platform of your choice at any time. We recommend that you launch it at the start of the school year so everyone can learn how to use the platform and visualize its potential.
