The COVID-19 pandemic has posed serious challenges to schools worldwide. The sudden transition from traditional to virtual classrooms plunged many teachers into uncharted waters, highlighting the insufficient experience with, and knowledge of, digital and remote teaching strategies. Practical and experiential, including Entrepreneurship Education (EE), have been halted despite the significant efforts and advancements of the last decade to include EE in school curricula. The Digital Firefly Project will develop tools and courses that will aid continuity in education by helping teachers to adjust to the new circumstances.
The projects aims to:
1) Investigate how teachers, trainers and teacher’s trainers could effectively maintain, adjust and scale their EE strategies to the demands of the New Normal.
2) Train and support teachers, EE educators and EE teacher’s trainers on how to use digital and remote teaching strategies and tools for delivering effective entrepreneurial learning experiences.
3) Provide practical online tools to ease the way for teachers/EE teachers and EE teacher’s trainers to ensure continuity of EE in online or blended learning environments.
4) Contribute to the wider policy and research discourses on the post-covid future of education in general and EE in specific.
