The paper takes a critical look at the existing approaches and online tools that are supposed to enhance the sharing and reusing of innovative pedagogical scenarios among teachers, such as IMS LD, LAMS, LessonPlanner, etc. We argue that there is a need for new ways of sharing pedagogical scenarios that would promote innovative approaches to learning and teaching, would be easy to use and would scale up the sharing and reusing of innovative pedagogical scenarios among teachers. As a potential solution to this challenge, the paper introduces a framework and online tool called LePlanner. We summarise the results of the first evaluation study, which engaged 20 teachers in actively using the tool over a period of 4 months.
