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.
