Clanbeat arrives in Georgia

We are proud to announce the start of a pilot project with 14 Georgian schools thanks to the sponsorship of the Estonian Development Cooperation Fund and partnerships with the Estonian Embassy in Tbilisi, Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia.

The goal of the pilot is to support students and their motivation to learn by increasing the self-awareness of personal well-being and mental health status with the help of the Clanbeat application and regular check-ins.

While the pandemic has shifted the timelines of this pilot, we’re happy to see the project kicking off this week and starting the training with schools and teachers involved. The onboarding of over 1600 students will start in February.

Thanks to this project, the Clanbeat mobile application is now also available in the Georgian language. The pilot is scheduled to last for 6 months and it concludes with a formal conference, where all the 14 schools involved will share their experience.

Hoped outcomes for students include:

  • increase in the sense of belonging;
  • increased self-awareness regarding well-being;
  • growth in overall well-being;
  • better self-analysis skills;
  • higher understanding of motivation and mental health.

Aia Gess, a participating school principal with over 7 psychologists on her staff says “when I was a teacher, I asked all my students at the start of each lesson to rate their emotional state on a scale of 1-10. I wrote it all down in my notebook and had a heart-to-heart conversation with anyone, who had a score under four. So I really feel like Clanbeat is a gift to all my younger colleagues!”

A teacher Mariana Tatarshvili adds “I have always thought that the emotional state in the classroom is often related to our own behavior in the classroom. This project allows us to mind stronger attention on ourselves as well.
