For supporting technology-enhanced in-service teacher accreditation for professional competences, this case study in Estonian context investigates the applicability of an organizational knowledge-management (KM) model extended by the principles of self-regulated learning. The survey findings revealed the existing state, open challenges, and potential barriers of supporting teachers' lifelong learning activities with the new model. An activity scenario and a set of software services supporting the harmonization of teachers' accreditation with the model were developed via a participatory design process with the teachers. The evaluation indicated that organizational, intra- and inter-personal scaffolds embedded in services were used concurrently in each accreditation activity.
