Agency for economic development of the city of Prijedor „PREDA-PD” organized the first Advisory group meeting on June 10, 2019 for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Advisory group consists of 10 members, representatives of relevant educational institutions, directors and/or professors of secondary schools, students, business representatives, civil organizations representatives and members of the InnoSchool project team.
Within the first meeting, Advisory group members provided important information and ideas concerning the development of the ILS. During the lively debate very important and constructive feedback has been received. Students are highly interested in ILS, especially for the testing of the Serious game. They emphasized importance of rewarding the best teams as a great motivator to participate pilot activity. Exchange of experiences and knowledge among students via social media or game is another important aspect for students and professors. All participants underlined that the ILS should be appealing and challenging and the game should provide some practical examples. Furthermore, professors, students and business representatives proposed organization of an event where students or the best teams will present their business ideas and potentially find a sponsor (company) that is going to support them. Business and social representatives suggested that students visit some of the organizations that are working on social needs issues and/or to organize guest lectures of representatives of social sector and successful businessmen in order to better understand social and economic impact.
The next Advisory group meeting was scheduled for the fall at the beginning of the first semester.
