Feel the Spirit of a Modern Europe-Bringing Entrepreneurship into Schools
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

As schools in a unified Europe, we have an education mandate to prepare our students for the life of learning and working in Europe. Our project intends to create in teachers and students a fundamentally positive attitude towards Europe by developing, defining and practicing cross-cultural, European attitudes. "Feel the Spirit of a Modern Europe-Bringing Entrepreneurship into Schools (MEBEIS)" aims at developing, supporting and assessing basic skills and crosscutting competencies of each individual student - as mandated under the EU strategy "General and Vocational Education". Students develop an entrepreneurial competence combined with social responsibility. They establish a student company "Europa for the World: Children help Children" thereby accepting a real entrepreneurial responsibility. The profits the company makes pay for teachers in Sri Lanka. Therefore, students set yet another sign of worldwide solidarity. The entrepreneurial routine and the collaboration at an international level will enable the students to participate in shaping Europe actively. They are able to act with confidence and on their own initiative. Ideally, they develop a future interest in business or responsibility for the future of Europe by establishing companies on their own. All involved students will optimize their job skills through an intensive job training entitled "Fit for job in Europe", which is offered during the entire duration of the project. This prepares students specifically for the European job market. Our Erasmus+Project helps in forming new friendships and in developing thought without borders determined by lifelong mobility and the readiness to assume responsibility in the European family. In addition, our project focuses on systematic, interdisciplinary and sustainable professionalism of the teaching profession in Europe by defining a European standard in the acquisition of competency in teacher education and continuing education. At the schools, we are additionally involved in innovative personnel and management concepts in form of an extended school management. Teachers experience a modern, European school management concept with the possibility to assume management responsibility themselves. With our project as a whole, we are trying to show possibilities to bring the European systems closer together and align them. The idea is the potential achievement of a joint European curriculum. Therefore, we integrate the results of the projects in the educational framework and in the teacher training and continuing education of the corresponding schools and we publish all results (guide, brochures, e-books, interactive e-learning material, definition of the digital competence matrix for teachers) as free downloads on eTwinning, EST-database, EPALE, the projectwebside, the homepages of the schools and the companies. Five partner schools from the Czech Republic, Italy, France, Poland and Germany come together for reciprocal visits for cross-national work meetings in light of our project goals and results. Ten students with varied background accompanied by two teachers participate for each country in every educational, teaching and learning activity. The plan calls for six workshops over the course of 24 months. Each workshop will last 5 days. In light of our project priorities, each school contributes its specific strengths and very own experiences so that we can all learn from and with one another. The project is characterized by the methodological diversity such as learning to learn, CLIL, learning through teaching, peer group learning and interactive educational games (hot potatoes, Be Boss). Overall, we expect a lasting effect and long-term benefit for all participants. The school family benefits if all participants expand their cross-cultural competency by transnational relationships, partnerships and friendships, which last beyond the duration of the project and which solidify the thought of a large European family. Companies fulfill their social responsibility whilst in tandem provide valuable business management experience. Companies gain highly qualified young talent ready to act in a mobile and flexible manner in a Europe without borders. In between the transnational meetings, the participants will primarily communicate and cooperate through eTwinning, blogs, Skype and online chats. This approach promotes and reinforces the sensible use and benefit of virtual international communication options even beyond the project's duration. The development and enhancement of basic competencies and crosscutting competences of all who participate in the project will be expanded and reinforced. In addition, it promotes cross-cultural openness and collaboration. It develops a better understanding of mentalities, tolerance and solidarity and finally an intuitive consciousness of a European identity.
