Abstract

This study presents the validation of the final phase of the NetEdu Tool, an online tool targeted at promoting the social capital of networks of educational and social organizations in a region. The tool makes available to educational leaders the possibility of self-assessing their own socio-educational network bearing in mind five dimensions: collaboration, transversality, horizontality, co-responsibility and innovation. The NetEdu Tool also facilitates micro-strategies so leaders can implement them to improve the levels attained on each of the dimensions and of the community ecosystem as a whole. In this study, we validated the micro-strategies via a panel of eight expert judges who assessed the intelligibility, consistency and utility of the micro-strategies. The results show a good selection of micro-strategies and high consistency, but it was suggested that its intelligibility be improved by including further nuances, specificity and exemplification. Thus, a series of changes and improvements in the tool were introduced, piloted and applied targeted at its usability, intelligibility, utility and inclusion.
