SENSES aims to promote and improve entrepreneurship education at schools by designing innovative products and teaching/learning methods, to cultivate to students at Primary Education, aged 7-12 with structured competences of social entrepreneurship and innovation context with the mission to develop adaptable thinkers, collaborative problem solvers and irrepressible social innovators.
During the 2nd SENSES project meeting that was held in EUROTraining’s premises in Athens, Greece on the 11th and 12th of November, SFEDI (as the overall project coordinator) provided an update on developments with the project during its first year and the consortium of partners reflected on their experiences to date in the development of the learning materials and resources. The joint action of 8 organisations across 5 European countries has played an important role in the development of diverse set of educational materials that will be used for the capacity building for teachers within primary education.
The SENSES digital environment will be an important asset for the project as it will host all educational materials produced, targeting school communities with various needs with regards to the implementation of social entrepreneurship and social innovation into teaching. Through the platform every teacher and student will have access to both the innovative teaching learning methods and the engagement package for SENSES students including various lesson plans, digital games, educational activities and evaluation quizzes.
Next project meeting will be organized by Specchio Magico in Lecco, Italy, on the 30th and 31st of March 2022.
