Aiming to reinforce entrepreneurship education, the consortium of the AppHop – Randomizing Entrepreneurship Training Through Breakout Challenges on Smartphones project held its first meeting in Virginia, Ireland on the 12th and 13th of November 2019. In the meeting, representatives of the participating organizations discussed aspects of the early stages of the project. The project brings together a consortium of organizations from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Poland, and Portugal.
AppHop is an Erasmus+ KA2 project and over the course of the two years that it will run, it will create a curriculum, designed and developed into learning material that will guide users through breakout challenges, inspired by the 15 most popular smartphone apps. Each of the 15 apps selected will address one of the 15 competences identified in EU’s EntreComp Framework that aims to facilitate entrepreneurship.
The project will also develop a training programme to help vocational education tutors incorporate the resources of the project in their trainings to build entrepreneurial competence more effectively.
CARDET, the project’s partner in Cyprus, will take part in the development of the breakout challenges and will develop online tools such as the project’s website where all digital breakout resources will be located for public use.
