The PIETE consortium welcomes the beginning of spring 2020 with a brand-new issue of the PIETE magazine, dedicated to exploring the concepts of entrepreneurship education for (aspiring and practicing) school teachers. Since our last publication, substantial progress has been made on the development of the project’s outputs and resources – please, stay tuned for the updates!
In the meantime, open this issue and dive into the exploration of the skills necessary for teachers to succeed in their work; get a glimpse of the entrepreneurship education examples in the context of initial teacher training as well as initiatives instilling entrepreneurial values among young learners around Europe. In the first section of the magazine, we invite you to get familiar with our results of the PIETE workshop series held in Austria, Hungary and Poland. Also, we are happy to share two new resources with you – PIETE Online Survey Instrument and PIETE Initial Teacher Education Methodological Framework. Further, our selection of the blog articles from the partners feature the examples of entrepreneurship education in Finland and Poland. We also offer you to discover an ample variety of entrepreneurship initiatives for kids and their teachers launched in Austria and Germany. Additionally, in this issue we introduce you to two books written for kids to understand complex economic issues but in a simple and engaging manner. On top, we will offer you insightful cases on developing and honing entrepreneurial skills offered to university students of different study areas in Germany and UK. The final section of the magazine brings you the selection of upcoming events that will welcome teachers and entrepreneurs in 2020, as well as the selection of recently released books on entrepreneurship education.
We hope the insights you will get after reading the recent issue will not only ignite your interest but provide you with some inspiration to integrate entrepreneurial skills development in your (maybe future) classroom!
We wish you a pleasant reading!
