The Shota Rustaveli State University in Georgia is part of an international team implementing a new EU-funded project to accelerate digital innovation in schools.

Tallinn University in Estonia is coordinating the iHub4Schools project, with a team of nine beneficiaries from Norway, United Kingdom, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Estonia, Lithuania and Georgia. 

The project, which was launched on 1 January, will work over 30 months with the aim to develop mechanisms to accelerate whole-school digital innovation in and across schools. The project will establish Regional Innovation Hubs in five European countries including Georgia, with the goal to set up a mentoring model that will be piloted with 600 teachers in 75 schools.

The project – funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 Programme – will develop different support mechanisms that will focus on supporting the collaboration between digitally advanced and less advanced teachers and schools through a variety of peer learning approaches and engagement structures.
