The breakfast burger

On Wednesday the 3rd of June, the second session of the live interviews cycle of Inspira STEAM at home took place, whose aim is to give visibility to female scientists and technologists. I have already talked to you about Inspira STEAM before, but not about today’s protagonist. She is an 18-year-old researcher, inventor, and entrepreneur, who is currently studying her second year of Medicine.

Talento Juntos: to communicate from your heart

More than a decade ago I met the protagonist of today’s post, my dear friend Diego. Then, I contacted him to carry out a session based on theatre and dramatization techniques on “overcoming fears” within the entrepreneurial spirit developing program Ekin-IT which I was honoured to coordinate at the University of Deusto. Diego was also working at Di Towanda Talent. Today, Diego, a person with that entrepreneurial spirit I defend, is the director of Talento Juntos. Do you want to know more about him and his project? Keep reading.  (more…)

It’s the final countdown

Yes, we have almost reached the end of the “EIPTE” (Entrepreneurship in Initial Primary Teacher Education) project (pronounced in very different ways) and here we are, oddly enough, wanting to do more.

It’s been almost three years (which will be complete by next July) and during those years we worked, fun, laughed (even cried), but we have also proven that:

  • entrepreneurship education is not just a dream,
  • we are worth more than we think,
  • we can also be teacherpreneurs (why not?),
  • before making our dreams come true, we have to set some goals,
  • we like our profession,
  • before being a team, we have to be a group,
  • it’s very difficult, but also possible, to work among professionals from countries of different rhythms and level of commitment; ultimately,
  • many other things, such as knowledge, abilities and, to sum up, competences we acquired, developed, and improved during this time.

Honestly, that’s what I thought we could do (and win) with this project.

A project created, as you already know, from international interaction and from good work and trust placed on people.

Well, next week, on Wednesday the 27th of May, will be the time to let everyone know what we’ve been doing these three years. I want to invite you personally to the event that, as it couldn’t be in any other way, will be online. This link is where you’d have to register to be able to enjoy this event with us. As always in this type of acts, there will be a quick opening, a presentation of the results (a little less quick, but hopefully not boring) of the project, a presentation of a resource made by two former students (teacherpreneurs, of course) of the Primary Education degree (one of those also EIPTE participant), and a round table with participants of the program. All of that in less than two hours (10:00 – 12:00 approximately), with a small break where we will present a summary video of our experience. Oh, and if you can’t, you don’t have to be there for the whole event, but we will appreciate it if you do.

Some of the results are already on the program’s website, so you can take a look if you want.

By the way, I also take this opportunity to tell you that last Thursday, the 21st of May,  I was invited to the Talento Juntos program to do an interview on their Instagram @talentojuntos. I want to thank my dear friend Diego Martos for this invitation. I met him thanks to entrepreneurship almost a decade ago and I haven’t seen in too long (but the distance doesn’t make us forget each other). You can see “the moment” in my Instagram profile, in Invitation section. I’ll be glad to share part of my passion with you.

Hope to see you next Wednesday or whenever you want. I’m always at your disposal.

Boo

Today I want to start this post with a very special dedication. On the one hand, to Irene, for being a child who has already started her life as a great warrior, and, on the other hand, to Lucia, her mom, because on Sunday it was her first birthday as a mom. Lucia, I know that, for many reasons, you won’t forget this experience. Once again, congratulations to the three of you. Now you get to enjoy it.

I’ve been wanting to write this post for a very long time, but today it is the best day for it. I present you Boo Studios. (more…)
