- Creating and supporting continuous learning opportunities for all staff - on individual and team level

The remaining two dimensions of the model – developing a shared vision centered on the learning of all students and modelling and growing learning leadership - are strengthened indirectly as part of developed organizational culture.
Its main focus is to inspire conscious efforts for gathering knowledge and preserving it within the organization. The wizard not only codifies explicit knowledge, but encourages way of sharing experience and expertise, which are difficult to be traced and documented.
The Wizard consists of the following modules, which follow logically one after the other, but may be views separately as well:
1. Knowledge Assessment
This step provides tools for individual teacher and staff assessment in terms of their professional performance and involvement in the organizational learning culture.
2. Knowledge Gathering
In this step teachers and school leaders may use a template for their individual and staff development plans. The platform has also suggested methods for Knowledge gathering within the organization and from the larger system.
3. Knowledge Application
In the Knowledge Application Step teachers may give evidence of the steps they have taken in their personal development plan – trainings they have participated in, classroom management goals they have achieved, etc.
4. Knowledge Sharing
This step provides inspiration for sharing the individual’s success with others from their team. The actual knowledge sharing practice that the teacher has applied may be uploaded as well.
