This paper concerns the development of an action-research diary for teachers, responding to their need for a learning a methodology that gives them self-control. This leads to their empowerment as social actors, and consequently enables them to transform themselves as well as their environment. The software is pre-tested and afterwards these users are conducted to assess whether it really matches with their everyday classroom work needs. These findings are used to improve the usability and functionalities of the software, which, in a second phase, will be tested at a larger scale in a ‘real world setting’ and in the future hopefully shows a significant impact in the daily work and cognitive processes of its users.
