Why InnoSchool?

The InnoSchool project tackles the need for system change to support weak entrepreneurial culture and low engagement to social innovation and entrepreneurship already at adolescent age. Age 16-17 when adolescents are at secondary schools is crucial to motivate and engage them to influence their future work and life career decisions. High-quality secondary schooling supporting education not only for future employees but also for future entrepreneurs is needed. 

Which are the objectives of the INNOSCHOOL project?

InnoSchool´s general objective is to strengthen social innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of secondary schools’ students, so from the beginning of the school year we have been piloting the highly innovative InnoSchool Learning System by introducing the InnoSchool Serious Game for online simulations joined with teacher lecturing/guiding sessions to maximize educational impact through experiential learning for students.

The first specific objective of the project is to improve attractiveness and impact of learning systems used at secondary school curriculums to strengthen social innovation and entrepreneurship spirit, the second specific objective is to improve stakeholder knowledge on using innovative learning systems and the third specific objective of Innoschool project is to improve educational frameworks by implementing ILS into curriculums.

The InnoSchool project introduces 4 core innovative elements:

  • serious game for online simulation of social innovation and entrepreneurship combined with lectures, guiding, reflection sessions held by teachers to maximize educational impact through an experiential learning process
  • social media's and interschool competition's aspect will be added to boost the attractiveness of the learning system,
  • inclusive design and development of the InnoSchool Learning System involving policy bodies, secondary schools, representatives of business helix,
  • development of Action plans to include the Innovative Learning System in territorial curricula to ensure sustainability and wide impact on society.

Why participate in the conference?

The InnoSchool Pilot was implemented this school year in 83 school, from 9 European countries. This highly innovative concept helped the schools, teachers and, especially, the 1767 students involved, gain new knowledge, skills and experience about social entrepreneurship.
