Vision or plan for entrepreneurship education

Our vision is to involve all students and all subjects in entrepreneurship education..

We cooperate with 'Index-Design to improve Life': "https://designtoimprovelife.dk/  and with Ebbe Kromann on the use of the KIE model: http://www.kie-modellen.dk/. All teachers are trained by Index and most of the teachers are familiar with the KIE model.

Besides, we offer a special innovative/entrepreneurial course for pupils to select. This course involves teaching different techniques to pupils, including three kinds of protytyping: App-building, 3D-drawing/printing and LEgO Mindstorm robot-building. The course also offers a study trip, which in 2013 went to Silicon Wadi in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The aim is for students to start their own companies and that they graduate when they receive their first payment.

Entrepreneurship Education is part of thi IIL project organized by DGI and Efterskoleforeningen. Read more here (in Danish): http://www.efterskoleforeningen.dk/da/Paedagogiske-temaer/Aktuelle-paedagogiske-projekter/Innovation
