Entrepreneurship Integrated In The Subjects

| October 18, 2015

To support the school vision, mission and goal, entrepreneurship has been integrated into the subjects this school year and will lead to the application of knowledge about how to do work more efficiently and effectively using entrepreneurial processes. The faculty heads in the High School have already designed topics to implement entrepreneurial learning. Learning about entrepreneurship is about learning entrepreneurial concepts, approaches to leaning, and using the learning cycle.

In their subjects, students learn the entrepreneurial concepts. Students learn about investigating, managing, and creating opportunities with innovative ideas. They discover and communicate their own innovative ideas accompanied by attitudes of honesty, responsibility and sensitivity to the needs of others. Developing the spirit of risk taking and the skills to solve real life problems with innovative ideas and open-mindedness enables students to achieve the best results.

This approach to learning is based on the paradigm of learner-centred education. There are six approaches to learning which are critical thinking, organization, creative thinking, collaboration, communication, and reflection. The aim is to develop learning with the understanding, knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to contribute to society. Students learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process through a high degree of participation, contribution and production.

In the teaching and learning process, the teacher uses the learning cycle to provide opportunities for students to gain knowledge and skills, and also build positive attitudes towards their learning. There are 5 aspects to the learning cycle which are:

  1. investigating,
  2. planning,
  3. taking action,
  4. communicating, and
  5. reflecting.
