Title: Young Entrepreneurs (E-twinning project)
Main Theme/Area of intervention: Entrepreneurship
Main objectives: Motivate entrepreneur competencies; cooperation with students of the same class and colleagues abroad; practice business and administration concepts.
Target groups addressed: Students were divided into teams, and they planned and executed the tasks. They created presentations, games, quizzes, and advertising campaigns. There were 4 subjects involved in the project. They communicated with foreign students through the e-twinning project page.
Main activities necessary for its realisation: The project had several phases. The first one being students’ presentations, as well as of the city where each school is situated. The products about each city were uploaded into the e-twinning page and the students played the games about the partners cities. Next they worked SWOT Analysis and chose a multinational company represented in Portugal to apply the analysis to a real company. Then students created their own company with an innovative product or service. The companies were split into different Markets, which included other partner schools. The next phase was the organization of a Trade Fair and students were incentivated to buy products of different companies within the same market. There was an election of the best company in each Market, and then students created an advertising campaign cooperating with foreign students and having specific tasks. Each company had to create a job ad and simulate an answer for that specific job. At the end there was an election for the best company and the winner was Our Wine.
Results achieved: Twenty students and four teachers were involved in the project; 6 companies were created; Students became more autonomous, their Business English improved; they also improved cooperation and became better digital learners.
Innovation: Interdisciplinary project; one specific day for the project; Co-creation of products.
