Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to use theories about the Zone of Proximal Development to understand the value of using tools in action research. Vygotsky’s theories are discussed within a group perspective on learning and are applied in a school development context. In the project three tools are introduced; shadowing, writing, and facilitating. We argue for the importance of using a variety of tools in action research as a means of focusing and improving practice.
