Experiential and gaming education for the development of sense of initiative and entrepreneurial skills in small and young students

Entrepreneurship is a skill that can be learnt. You don’t have to be born an entrepreneur to run a successful business. You can become one by developing an entrepreneurial mind set and skills. As Europe needs more entrepreneurs creating jobs, it’s necessary to support this type of education in all EU countries.

Entrepreneurship education prepares people to be responsible and enterprising individuals. It helps people develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to achieve the goals they set out for themselves. Evidence shows that people with entrepreneurial education are more employable.

The most effective way to teach skills in young people is by interactive methodology and, in particular, through gaming activities. The course aims at transmitting experiential learning methodology and practical games to be used in class so as to “teach”, actually to develop, students and youngsters entrepreneurial skills, thus enabling them to become one day their own bosses.

Teachers attending this course will taste and collect a set of gaming activities and experiential learning tools to be used in school, along with some monitoring and evaluation tools for the assessment of skills acquisition.

The methodology will be blended (theory and practice) with a strong emphasis on the practical implementation of gaming tools, thus be prepared to play a lot and have fun while learning!
