WHAT ARE WE?

Today I want to dedicate this post in a special way to the students of the Primary Education Degree of the Bilbao campus of the University of Deusto, to my colleague and coordinator of the Primary Education degree, Miryam Martínez, who has supported and participated actively from the beginning in this project, and to my main teacherpreneur and “travel” companion Jessica Paños. 3 years ago, in 2017, all of them decided to take advantage of a GREAT OPPORTUNITY: to enter the TEACHERPRENEUR WORLD. 

You’ve already heard me talk about this adventure more than once, but today this post, with the rest of my follower’s permission, is dedicated to them: Jessica, Miryam, Ainhoa (I and II), Jorge, Garazi, Alazne, Maider (I and II), María, Leire, Andrea, Ane, Paula, Unai, Nerea, Uxue and Héctor, who today becomes a Doctor.   (more…)

And you, what do you want to be when you grow up?

I’ve been keeping the video that I want to share with you for a long time. It’s a video that starts out with a simple question which for some is not easy to answer:

What do you want to be when you grow up?

The video is about education, creativity, learning, freedom, innovation, hackers, school, personal interests, motivation, risks, emotion, opportunities and self-discovery, among others. All of that from the thoughts of a ten-year-old boy.

Some of you might think that this has nothing to do with entrepreneurship. On the contrary, I think it has a lot in common with starting new actions, new paths, new projects and new challenges. It is also linked to many of the values assigned to the entrepreneur and to the education of future generations.

Here you have it. I hope you like it.

I wish you happy summer holidays.

Contributing to the social transformation from social entrepreneurship

On Wednesday the 21st of June, my first doctoral student (already a PhD) Nerea Sáenz defended the thesis entitled: La formación en emprendimiento social en la educación superior: competencias, metodologías de enseñanza-aprendizaje e instrumentos de evaluación. Estudio de casos en dos universidades europeas. (Training in social entrepreneurship in higher education: competencies, teaching and learning methodologies and assessment tools. Study of the cases in two European universities).

Today not only I present you some of the main ideas of the thesis, but also her author, of whom I feel so proud. Why would it be? (more…)

WOPing around life

Do you know what a runner, an alpinist, a pianist and a neurologist do together in a room, surrounded by approximately 450 people, most of them between 15 and 18, coming from 7 different schools of Bilbao and surrounding area? You can think about it for a while or read this post and find it out.

The choice is yours. I can wait as much as you want.
