The LocalWeavers Tool is adressed to network leaders that are catalyzing collaborative networks in the field of education. The tool analyses these networked initiatives that aim to weave learning ecosystems in a neighborhood or community. The tool collects information through a questionnaire for all network members and evaluates the results of the organization in relation to the fulfillment of the 6 domains: CO-RESPONSIBILITY, TRANSVERSALITY, HORIZONTALITY, COLLABORATION, INNOVATION and TRUST. The results and advice given by the tool help leadership teams strengthen their learning ecosystems. This is a theoretically and empirically validated model and provides meaningful information for leadership teams to improve educational outcomes.
The survey has the objective of collecting the individual perceptions of all the participants in the Network, as professionals and volunteers. The questionnaire presents 31 items responded in a Likert scale in which the respondents show their degree of agreement or disagreement with the statements. The questionnaire is divided into three different sections: ‘Individual’, ‘Educational project’ and ‘Leadership’, with the possibility to write specific comments at the end. Respondents take approximately 15 minutes to answer.
