eNetEnergy Entrepeneurship Education
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

eNetEnergy Entrepreneurship Education project has the objective to develop in the new generation some very important attitudes: consciousness about Energy and sustainability issues, entrepreneurial disposition, openness towards internationalization. Its other objective stands from a teacher point of view: increase all the European key competences in the educational field using active teaching methodologies like problem solving, experimental activities, case studies, both in formal and informal environments, using ICT. The proposal was born last year after being involved in the European project “European Labs Network: School Enterprise Research", between ITT Buonarroti (Italy) and Northgo College (The Netherlands). After having learnt about each other teaching and learning good practices, we had the idea of exchanging and joining them through the development of practical activities to be performed also with students’ involvement. Thanks to our contacts in research departments and in local companies, we have designed a set of activities to have students work on real case studies stated from our external partners. During the project the students of 6 classes (3 Italian and 3 Dutch, from different specilizations) will collaborate peer-to-peer to analyze and solve the case study with teachers’ tutoring. This collaboration will be performed both virtually and physically. A representative of 52 students and 12 teachers (half Italians, half Dutch) will take part to the mobility phases. We believe that this learning-by-doing methodology in an informal environment targeted on real life problems will effectively enhance entrepreneurial education, multilingual awareness, high quality learning, digital competences. Moreover this project represents a concrete and necessary occasion to enhance teachers' preparation on latest European teaching objectives. We will share methodologies, materials, digital experiences, different competences using ICT resources we partially already have at our disposal. ICT will be used to communicate and exchange our respective contributions but also to monitor, evaluate and solve failure risks and eventual problems arising during the project. This project will also be a positive occasion to improve and spread innovative learning methodologies, schools’ curriculums, evaluation and certification of competences. The partnership is supported by the following stakeholders: MUSE (museum of science in Trento), EIT ICT Labs of Trento and Eindhoven, Heliopolis (Energy factory in Trento), EPICT of Genoa University (Certificatory agency), Liceo of Arts "Vittoria" of Trento. We will also have the support of the local public administration. The project foresees various intellectual outputs that will represent the substantial means of dissemination together with meetings and a final event. The main activities that will be performed are: - linguistic and cultural training - identification of a syllabus and the develop of an evaluation and certification grid for European key competences, performed with EPICT support; - definition of a multidisciplinary didactic unit centered on the energy subject performed; - role playing game development and execution, with MUSE collaboration, to enhance social abilities and green energy knowledge; - production of an eBook on the Energy topic; - infografic design and representation of main project results with Liceo “Vittoria” tutoring - problem solving: research and development of tools to elaborate data about companies power consumption, with Heliopolis - development of monitoring applications about every day energy consumption with EIT ICT labs The project deployment will be monitored by specific analysis's grids, defined at the start of all activities; they will permit to adjust the time table, identify eventual timing or activities dependencies problems and optimize the available resources. Indicators, to be precisely identified in the preparation phase, will measure the extent to which the project reaches its goals by measuring compliance to initial planning and to initial budget. On the long term, the project will benefit participating organizations, and all the others reached by dissemination activities, allowing to: improve didactic strategies; encourage foreign studies and activities; create new possibilities to develop an international vision for school education; experiment and share evaluation and certification of competences; create a collaboration network between schools and external stakeholders active both in research and enterprise fields.
