Challenges to me?, asks an EIPTE student

Last week was particularly important to me. Within the Erasmus + EIPTE (Entrepreneurship in Initial Primary Teacher Education) project and from the Faculty I belong to, the Faculty of Psychology and Education of the University of Deusto, I organized the 3rd intensive week of the project. I admit that it took me so long, much longer than I hoped for, but it helped me realize what organizing a week like this means and that if you believe that you can and you make an effort to do so, everything is possible. Besides, the results were worth it, the atmosphere was even more and the company was excellent. I want to use this post to thank the people who have supported us and have made this week to be considered a success (they know who they are). I also want to present you the numbers and data that reflect a part of what the week of the 1st to the 5th of April has meant for the entrepreneurial education and the training of teacherpreneurs (in this occasion, students from the degree of Primary Education of 6 institutions, included the University of Deusto). I wish we keep having these opportunities because entrepreneurship, education and the children of primary school deserve it. (more…)

Surrounded by entrepreneurs.

Although I’m posting this blog post a couple of weeks later than I wanted to do, I think it’s worth doing it, especially for the E.P. and the initiatives I’m going to talk to you about. The thing is that these past weeks I’ve had the opportunity to go to Copenhagen, Denmark, to participate on the European project EIPTE. I’ve done it with 15 students of the Grade of Primary Education at the University of Deusto, and two colleagues of the same university that, like me, opt for the entrepreneurial education and the teacherpreneurs. But let’s go by parts, I’ll tell you this story later.

EIPTE!

A couple of weeks ago I visited Lüneburg, Germany, an ideal place to celebrate a very special kick-off meeting. The fact is that on July 29th, 2017 I received a really good news: a strategic project within the Erasmus+ programme was approved. Finally, I was going to work on a topic that I’ve been defending for a long time and where I’ve been taking small steps. It would mean more work, yes, but the topic deserved a special toast.

Do you want to know why? Go on. (more…)
