A statement supporting the importance of flexibility in entrepreneurial teaching and learning approaches, based on the experiences of Junior Achievement Slovakia.
Purpose and process
To help students, educators must adapt to a continually changing world. As students develop products and services, educators must provide feedback that helps students understand how customers might respond to innovations. Educators must present students with problems that the students must then solve, instead of having students answer questions with only one correct answer. Students must develop self-awareness and empathy for the consumer.
- Develop self-awareness and empathy for the consumer;
- Build a range of enterprising skills, attitudes and behaviours, including problem-solving, decision-making, negotiation and the ability to adapt one's strategic approaches to fit with changing circumstances.
Curricular or thematic relevance
Could enrich most subject areas, including STEM.
How to organise:
A flexible approach can be used in any context.
Assessment and evaluation approaches
Feedback from teachers is integral to the learning process.
Activities can be enhanced by the involvement of a business mentor who may be able to guide the teacher in developing a more flexible approach to entrepreneurial learning through their own experience of the workplace.

Both teachers and students alike need to bear in mind that a flexible approach is a key factor in facilitating learning.Flexibility regarding decision making, initiative, and negotiation helps learners to grow more mature ,creative and resoonsible for their outcones.
I see this as a very useful tool to be implemented across multiple subjects
