What are the tools and processes for?

The impact project tools and processes consist of a wide range of digital technologies (such as websites, apps etc) hard-copy resources, diagrams and collaborative documents that can be used to help with the impact project driver practices. Using tools that support driver practices it will be easier for you to progress your project and reach a higher quality outcome in your learning and product. Sometimes you'll be able to use these fairly easily straight away, while other times you'll need to develop some skills in their use. The learning you do here will be useful in the future as you'll be able to decide which of these practices support good outcomes in any individual and collaborative work you do.
