Technology Startup Hub River City Labs is launching a masterclass in collaboration with Youth Entrepreneurship Curriculum specialists, Future Anything. Both organisations have assisted and supported thousands of educators and students through their programs, River City Labs’ YEN ( Young Entrepreneurs Program ) and Future Anything’s Innovative entrepreneurship program.
The newly launched masterclass will equip educators and teaching teams with the strategy and support to use entrepreneurship as a vehicle to teach enterprise skills to future proof young people for academic success.
“The masterclass will explore why we need to think differently about education and how by adapting some entrepreneurial mindset strategies, schools can engage in productive partnerships with forward-thinking organisations to leverage more opportunity for their young people,” said Peta Ellis, River City Labs CEO.
The one-day masterclass will cover three sessions:
Session 1: Why
Understanding and exploring the rapidly changing world of work and why education needs to shift to meet the needs of the next generation.
Session 2: What
In this session, we dig into the ten enterprise skills that young people will need to acquire to prepare them for the economy of the future.
Session 3: How
In the final session, we
explore how to implement an education-specific design thinking methodology that
will build the entrepreneurial mindset of the young people in your classroom.
“As educators, we’re acutely aware that the landscape is shifting- and feel a deep sense of responsibility to prepare young people for a rapidly changing ‘future of work’. The challenge lies in how to respond in a way that best meets these needs whilst also juggling the demands of a crowded curriculum. This masterclass cuts through the white noise to capture the ‘why’, ‘what’ and ‘how’ of future proofing your classroom; drawing on best practice that is backed by research,” said Future Anything Co-founder Nicole Dyson
The masterclass jointly facilitated by Ms Ellis and Ms Dyson will include a panel of entrepreneurial guest speakers throughout the day.
