What do a coach, a researcher, a Ph.D., an artist, a football player, a rugby player, a podcaster and a singer do in a school with children of 5th and 6th grade of primary school accompanied by a group of excited teachers? If you want to know, you just have to keep reading. Aren’t you curious?
As you know, last week I attended a very interesting congress about educational entrepreneurship. Suddenly, one of the speakers, Néstor Guerra, whom I was so excited to see live, named as good practice Gaptain: one of the E.P. I was lucky to have worked with and whom I follow very closely. I’m sure you’ve heard of them, right? If you haven’t, here you have another chance of knowing them, because coincidence or not, the other day I was at the presentation of another one of their projects: Kids Centric. (more…)
Some people have already heard me say that during the past year (2019-2020), yes, the year of the COVID-19 pandemic, life gave me a couple of gifts that I won’t easily forget. One of them was not only meeting but also having fun with the Princess of Girona Foundation (FPdGi) and its great professionals from one of their pedagogical expeditions together with a group of Spanish professors whom today, without a doubt, I consider friends and colleagues for life.
Some months ago, thanks to the information given to me by my colleague from the Faculty of Psychology and Education of the Univesity of Deusto, Cristina Pena, who knows my passion about entrepreneurial teaching and teacherpreneurs very well, I applied to participate at the 5th Pedagogical Expedition organized by the Princesa de Girona Foundation with the support of the Trilema Foundation.
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.
