This is where all the activities in the project will be uploaded
The activities prepare the students to be active, enterprising individuals by immersing them in real learning experiences. They can plan and manage projects, adapt to changes, deal with risk, and acquire problem-solving skills while teachers guide, facilitate and support them. In order to give our business a European dimension, we need to be on the Internet and the social networks. Students will learn to use marketing tools to reach customers.
Tangible results will be i.e. a series of infographics and visual presentations especially designed by teachers to teach students how to build an ecommerce site and how to make use of the different social networks with a marketing purpose.
Students will put everything they learn into practice by designing a website showing the products and linking all the social networks to increase traffic and sales. The website will also have a blog to inform customers about new products and the business progress (the project). The blog will also be used to reflect on the students´ learning process (learning portfolio).
In the social networks, students will post photos, videos and short texts which will send traffic to the main website and will keep potential customers informed. Another tangible result will be a catalogue app containing all the products made by INSOAP.
Soap will be produced by the Spanish students and they will be wrapped in sustainable cardboard packaging designed and produced by the Danish students. A trade fair in Flix in May 2019 will be organized as a finale to the project and as a gathering place for producers and customers. TV commercials advertising the selling products will be shot and edited and shown on YouTube and the project website. During the project, teachers will share different interactive and practical methodogical approaches. These will include utilizing process and problem-oriented learning, active training workshops, practical learning activities, sites visiting gaining knowledge and experience in real life learning environments.
This project is not TEACHING ABOUT entrepreneurship. We EDUCATE FOR entrepreneurship and that makes the difference. "How to run a sustainable European business" requires teachers facilitating learning and to enabling students´ selfdiscovery.
The workshops held as further formation and experimentation during the students´ mobilities highlight the methodology of reflective observation, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation that is present in the project.Teachers must work closely together cross the borders and learn from each other’s practice to develop and strengthen our professional profile leading to reflection on own didactic practice. At an institutional level, the project will make bonds between the
two institutions. The project is a crucial step in the internationalization and coworking process of the two institutions.
