Program for Innovative Educators
An educator’s program dedicated to K-12 teachers, admin, and leaders
Learn how to integrate concepts of entrepreneurship into your classroom and programs. Educators will gain a deep understanding of the evidence-based entrepreneurial process – from design thinking and ideation to the business model canvas – and practice methods to apply these ideas in their classroom.
Research cited by the World Economic Forum indicates that 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist. Come explore what this means for education and learn how to integrate concepts and activities into your classroom that can help prepare students to successfully adapt to change.
Entrepreneurial education helps students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, innovative and creative mindset, evidence-based decision making skills, leadership, teamwork and communication.
