InnoSchool initiative was introduced by DEX IC at 5th International Stakeholder Conference of the EUSDR PA9 in Moldova

20.10.2017

The 5th International Stakeholder Conference of the EUSDR PA9 took place on October, 9th in Chisinau, Moldova. Jan Kubalik, representative of DEX IC gave the presentation about our InnoSchool initiative (Strengthening social innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of secondary schools´ students by using highly innovative Learning System).

InnoSchool initiative focuses on adolescents of age 17-18 years and tackles the need for system change to support weak entrepreneurial culture and low engagement to social innovation entrepreneurship. The general objective of InnoSchool is to strengthen social innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of secondary schools´ students by development and introduction of highly innovative Learning System.

How we decided to achieve InnoSchool general objective? 11 members from 9 countries from Danube territory (including also partners from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Moldavia) will cooperate to realize activities in the framework of 2nd call of Interreg Danube Programme.

As Jan described during his presentation, there are 3 key steps to achieve InnoSchool goals:

  1. Developing of highly innovative InnoSchool Learning System by combining of teacher’s guidance and lecturing with on-line simulations using the serious game. It will also include the components of social media and competitiveness to raise the attractiveness for students
  2. Pilot of ILS in 9 countries with altogether 90 schools to deliver good practice samples and develop institutional knowledge
  3. Incorporation of Innoschool Learning system to territorial curricula to ensure sustainable change

Currently, the members of InnoSchool initiative reached the point, when further funding is needed. Therefore we apply to 2nd call of Interreg Danube Programme and the project is currently under evaluation. We hope to provide soon positive news.
