One of the main innovative elements is Public E-lab, an indispensable part of Centre for Non-formal Education of Local Community Leaders. The E-Lab serves as a platform for the design, development and promotion of socially significant ideas of the local community, a model for the interaction and e-networking of active representatives of the local community. The E-lab carries out the training for would-be and active community leaders on the formation of virtual communication skills in blogs and forums, including virtual communication with representatives of local authorities, deputies.
One of the specific objectives is establishing Centers for Non-formal Education for Local Community Leaders with Public E-Lab as a platform for e-networking, design, development and promotion of socially significant ideas of the local community
ICT priority will be addressed by establishing the Education Centre for Leadership where the target groups will receive and develop ICT competences bringing them closer to each other and to the new digital generation of their students.
In each partner country (KAZAKHSTAN and MONGOLIA) Education Centre for Leadership will be established and equipped to serve as a platform for informal education and for networking of educators with local communities in socially relevant projects. In the centre for leadership, we will carry out important activities during the project time, but also beyond. The centre will support teacher-led professional learning events such as “Teaching-Meets” and related pedagogical events, it aims to sustaining teachers' use of their experience of practitioner enquiry to support others. In the Centre, Teachers from EU and the partner countries develop leadership competences through effective communication and collaboration with colleagues, the Center staff organaises activities to support teacher leadership professional learning (also eLearning activities) in its framework.
It is expected that in partner countries approximately 250 MA students will study the Master program. Approximately 30 teachers from partner countries will participate in professional development pilot programs. Approximately 2000 people will use the facilities of established Centers during the life cycle of the project.
