29.-31.01.2024 winter school in Mataro, Spain


The Winter School focused on educational technology (edTech) and brought together students from our partner universities in a collaborative international environment: Tallinn University, VSB-Technical University of Ostrava (Czech Republic), TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme (Spain), and the University of Bielsko-Biala (Poland).

Over the course of three days, students worked in four international teams on the following topics: the concept of innovation and ideas between education and technology, business models in educational technology innovations, customer journey mapping, prototyping and validation, principles of presenting innovative ideas, and principles of crafting an elevator pitch. With the guidance of mentors, each team produced a new educational technology idea presented in the form of an elevator pitch. In addition to the topics covered, students also experienced learning and working in an international team.

But this journey doesn't end here! The second cycle of mentorship begins in February, providing our participants with further opportunities to enhance their entrepreneurial skills. The culmination of this approaching second cycle will be the Summer School in June at the TLU School of Educational Sciences.
