Abstract: The EU-funded project KeyToNature is developing and optimising interactive tools for identifying organisms, making them suitable for being usable in the field of formal education across Europe. To define the requirements of the target audience, research was conducted in 11 partner countries during an initial project phase. Teachers and lecturers from primary schools to university level were asked to express their views about selected existing identification tools in a qualitative survey. The target audience was asked about perception, strengths and optimisation options, output channels and pedagogical application fields. The results showed that the adaption of the tools to the range of local organisms and the native language of the audience represents a fundamental step.
