STEAME-HYBRID SCHOOL LABEL

Challenge

Do you want to give more visibility to the hybrid innovation implemented by your school?

Do you want to certify its hybrid education readiness?

The STEAME-HYBRID SCHOOL LABEL is a brand-new certification for schools produced by the EU funded project STEAME-Hybrid and aims to attest the appropriate level of hybrid education readiness reached by schools, as well as their effectiveness in organizing and implementing hybrid STEAME activities in the teaching and learning practice. The Hybrid Label is a certified indicator confirming the effect of acknowledging and showcasing the commitment of that particular school towards high-quality digital education.

The STEAME-HYBRID LABEL is a two-stage certification label. The Label Stage 1 certification is awarded to schools that demonstrate a commitment to improve their readiness and their practices related to the implementation of the STEAME approach, while the Full Label is awarded to schools that provide evidence of improvement of the internal practices regarding the implementation of STEAME HYBRID activities and a concise sustainability plan.
