About iHub4Schools

The main goal of the project is to coordinate and support the creation of sustainable multi-level Regional Innovation Hubs in local communities across Europe, each fostering the scaling of the digital innovation. iHub4Schools proposes an adaptive and flexible whole-school peer-learning mentoring model built on the innovation hubs.

The model consists of several core components and auxiliary approaches selected by the schools based on their needs. The model combines the school’s whole-school level improvement practices with the co-creation of the technology-enhanced pedagogical practices in collaboration with the teachers

Collection of the best practices of partners and networking schools as well as from research about technology-enhanced pedagogical practices, schools’ digital maturity and school mentoring model to support mainstreaming digital innovation.

Assessment of schools’ digital maturity and teachers’ digital competences to identify the digitally less and more advanced teachers and schools in five piloting countries.

Co-creation of methods and practices for a dynamic mentoring model with the national stakeholder networks

Establishment of Regional innovation Hubs consisting of co-creation teams between the schools; national
stakeholder networks involving also researchers, policy bodies, teacher trainers.

Piloting of the mentoring model: teachers in collaboration with industry representatives and university experts co-create pedagogical practices in technology-enriched learning scenarios, which will be validated with the students by collecting data with the support of the learning analytics toolbox tools.
