The piloting phase involved four organizations, each selecting participants from their teaching staff. These participants varied in their levels of digital competence, ensuring a diverse range of experiences and feedback. Each piloting group underwent a structured process that included both in-person feedback sessions and online meetings. This blended approach facilitated comprehensive learning and adaptation to digital tools. 

Participants completed 3 training modules tailored to improving their digital skills. Successful completion of these modules was recognized with the awarding of open badges, providing an incentive for continuous learning and achievement.
