Entrepreneures crossing borders, así fue y así lo contamos (English)

 We close the Etwinning project "Entrepreneurs crossing Borders" that we have carried out this year with enormous personal and learning returns.

The project started in September with huge technical problems as we suffered the migration from the old etwinning platform to the current one which was integrated in the Erasmus+ platform.

Picture At our School.

Two Belgian schools, one Swedish, one Italian and we started an uncertain journey that turned out to be precious thanks to the essential company of our Swedish partners.


What did it consist of?

 The project consisted of designing a business model, testing and pivoting it after seeking international partnerships between centers.

To reach this final milestone, we had to work in class with active methodologies all the entrepreneurial process that clearly establishes the curriculum of Fundamentals of Administration and Management of the 2nd year of Bachillerato.

What objectives did we set ourselves?

- Developing communication skills in a business context.

- To promote collaborative work within an international business project.

- Encourage teamwork and entrepreneurship as forms of active learning in today's world.

- Share evidence of work with the intention of promoting the creation of joint ventures between countries.

- Launch business ideas related to the 2030 agenda that involve the active participation of global citizens.

- Develop international business relationships,

- Acquire social competence and use digital resources.

- Develop communication skills in a foreign language (English),

- Develop presentation and problem-solving skills.


 What methodologies do we apply?

Fundamentally active methodologies that were organized around the famous Bloom's Taxonomy.

 1) To work on the first stages of Bloom's Taxonomy that put into practice the entrepreneurial process, we researched on the demographic challenge (Cyl Youth Report) and on several SDGs (poverty, responsible consumption, equity, smart cities).

2) To concretize and create we use a proprietary dynamic that I have called Venn Local Venn Global. I use Venn diagrams for students to find the point of intersection between the local problem of depopulation and global problems associated with the SDGs.

3) Students evaluate and apply Lean Start Up to create a business model that undergoes a pivot with the visit of our Swedish partners.

Students rework the canvas incorporating the synergies detected after the swedish visit.

How do we work?

We work as a team, physically and remotely. We teach the students team building dynamics and programs that allow us to work remotely such as Mural or Google Drive.

Are we  bilingual?

No, we are not bilingual, but we are able to communicate in English both in writing and orally.
